Just over one week ago, more people watched Super Bowl XLVI on television than any other time in history – 111.3 million people, a staggering number. In addition, more than 2.1 million unique visitors saw the game streamed live online, another first. The experience for fans at home is incredibly powerful with HD, live streaming, and fast access to the Internet.
However, while so many of us were tuned in at home, another first was taking place inside Lucas Oil Stadium – all fans, regardless of their service provider, were able to use their smartphones and devices to connect to a free Wi-Fi network. This provided them with a significantly faster option to surf the web, use apps and share photos and video “live” with friends and family versus doing so post-game.
