Feb 05, 2016, 15:13 ET from Verizon

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Feb. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT

You'll be among the first to see a variety of real-time wireless network stats during SuperBowl 50 at Levi's Stadium that tell a unique story about football's biggest contest and cultural phenomenon, from the one-handed catch that becomes an instant internet meme to the half-time show's most dazzling moment.

It's like having a coach's chart of big plays before they happen.

At last year's big game, Verizon customers racked up more than 4 terabytes of data. 
That's a powerful blitz of wireless connections – tweets, texts, pics, posts, etc. – each minute.
The biggest spikes in 2015 hit during the first score and the halftime show.

WHEN

Sunday, February 7, 2:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Pre-game, in-game and post-game
