We’re Halfway There

Mid-Season College and Pro Football Metrics

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already halfway through the 2014 football season. The contenders are starting to separate themselves from the pack and so are the venues where our customers are using the most mobile data on our in-stadium cellular networks. Below are the top data-heavy venues at this year’s mid-season mark as well as associated trends we noticed.

Mid-Year Scoreboard at a Glance

  • So far this season, there have been 119 pro football games and 214 college football games played across more than 75 different venues where we provide in-venue coverage via Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).
  • In total, across these 333 games our customers have used more than 104.9 Terabytes of mobile data on our in-venue cellular networks. That’s the same as 104,913 Gigabytes. Or more simply put, it is equivalent to more than 300M social media posts with photos.
  • At this point in the year, pro football fans are edging college fans in average data usage per game by a 342GB to 293GB margin. Or a difference equivalent to about 140K more social media posts with photos per game on average.

Top Teams Top Our Mobile Standings

  • The top five pro and college venues in our mid-season data usage rankings play home to teams that have had success on the field this season. The teams finding their way to the top of our mobile standings also haven’t had any issues finding their way to the end zone, as they own some of the most explosive offenses in their respective leagues.
    • In college football, the top five venues host:
      • Two teams ranked in the top 15 of the polls
      • Teams with a collective record of 27-12
      • Teams with an average scoring offense ranking of 30.2 out of 124 teams
      • Three teams are all from the same conference
    • In pro football, the top five venues host:
      • Teams that rank an average of second place in their four-team divisions
      • Teams with a collective record of 22-15
      • Teams with an average scoring offense ranking of 10.6 out of 32 teams
      • Five teams from five different divisions

Caveats:

  • All figures include only data traffic seen on AT&T’s venue-specific mobile network.
  • All data metrics come from only venues with a DAS where AT&T’s mobile network is on-air and under contract. These metrics are not comprehensive of every game played during the pro or college football season.
  • This data is compiled from only football stadiums that had home games during this selected timeframe where AT&T is on-air on a DAS.
