Super Bowl Stadium got 1,000 Antennas to support 150,000 Phone Users
 
 

The Super Bowl 2011 is taking place at the Dallas Cowboys stadium in North Texas on Feb. 6th. The 2009 opened stadium in Arlington has a capacity of up to 110,000. When you have a crowd of 100,000 is it usually almost impossible to get a call or text messages out on your cell phone. Networks regularly break down at events. The Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants to avoid this problem an has his stadium enhanced with cell phone capacity for the big game. According to a Fox 4 News report the Dallas Cowboys stadium has now 1,000 Wi-Fi and cellular network antennas and has the capacity for 150,000 people to make calls and send SMS in and around the stadium.

We will see on Super Bowl Sunday if the enhanced infrastructure is enough. Do not expect to get a 3G Skype video call out, but you will be able to tell your friends how cool it is to be at the Super Bowl 2011.

You can watch the Fox 4 News report below.
