MIAMI (AP) - AT&T; spent $85 million in the past year to boost its network coverage and capacity at the Miami stadium where tens of thousands of fans will watch the Super Bowl next week.

The company said in a statement that it had upgraded a portion of the Distributed Antenna System in the stadium and parking lot to provide over 300% more capacity than was available at the start of football season.

The company has also upgraded and installed new DAS at more than two dozen locations around Miami where thousands of fans will gather, including hotels, airports, convention centers and practice fields to improve reliability and data speed.

They’re also working with the First Responder Network Authority. AT&T; deployed Band 14 spectrum that can be cleared and locked in an emergency to help first responders. They’ve also installed metro cells at numerous local and federal public safety agency centers to provide agencies with a direct network connection to critical information.
