    This survey proves just how essential a strong network is in the success of any stadium event. Just remember Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s stadium – 38% of attenders used Wi-Fi (over 27,000 people) during the game. This single football game set the record for WI-Fi usage with 10.1 terabytes of traffic on the stadium network, making it the techiest Super Bowl yet: http://www.mobilesportsreport.com/2016/02/levis-stadium-crowd-sets-single-day-wi-fi-record-with-10-1-tb-used-at-super-bowl-50/
