T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.

Anyone release reports yet?

I just went to rcrwireless and they have a small article on it

https://www.rcrwireless.com/20230214/carriers/verizon-and-att-super-bowl-lvii-fans-used-record-amount-of-data

VZW used 47.8TB, AT&T 21TB.

62,827 fans with 60% being VZW customers.

VZW had 1,400 under seat 4/5G nodes. 490 5G nodes. AT&T deployed 2,000 nodes inside the stadium.

At least for VZW, beings we know how many people were their customers, they had 19 people per node.

Additional math: VZW customers consumed on average 760 MB on Sunday, though my guess is that the number was actually lower because VZW probably had some non-fan macro traffic in there.

Wonder what the breakdown on customer count was between AT&T and T-Mobile. In order for AT&T to have used less data per person, T-Mobile market share would need to have been pretty small.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
