The power surge displayed over the weekend gave fans some big plays to share from AT&T Park with family, friends, and on social networks. Here are some of the record-breaking numbers we saw on our venue-specific mobile network at AT&T Park from the Giants’ three home games during the World Series: Fans used more than 477GB of data on the AT&T cellular network during the game on 10/25. This is equivalent to more than 1.36M social media post with photos. This marked the highest single game total for cellular data usage at AT&T Park in ballpark history. Fans used an average of approximately 447GB of data per game over the weekend on the AT&T cellular network. This is equivalent to more than 1.27M social media post with photos.
