CHARLOTTE'S WORLD WIDE WEB: AT&T said that it has invested $500M in "cellular and Wi-Fi upgrades across Charlotte during the last three years." In Charlotte, Erik Spanberg noted an "unspecified portion of that investment" includes Bank of America Stadium. Through the first six home games in '13, fans "used 1.9 million megabytes of data on the stadium's upgraded Wi-Fi system," an increase of 50% compared from the same period last year. At the same time, wireless cellular data "jumped 90 percent over 2012 through the first six games." AT&T has "blanketed the stadium with antennas to strengthen reliability and connection times." Meanwhile, voice minutes on the cellular network at the stadium grew 32% "to 78,000 minutes during the first six games of this season." For Wi-Fi, 32,000 connections "have been made during the same period" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 12/12).
