US Bank upgrading broadband for the Superbowl

The US Bank Stadium is apparently getting ready for the Superbowl. Channel 4’s Jason DeRusha just did a story on upgrades they are making to the stadium’s wifi network to accommodate all of the fans and media outlets coming to the game.

Some interesting notes –

  • The network is synchronous – meaning same upload and download – so that people can publish info as quickly as they can download it.
  • They have 1300 wifi access pointss
  • The network supports 2400 HDTV.
  • They can support 70,000 devices all online at the same time
