ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) - Final Four fans set new highs for data usage during the tournament last weekend. AT&T added Wi-Fi hotspots and Hot Zones to help keep people tweeting and sharing moments from the tournament, even hiding antennas underneath the basketball court.

– Total data usage on the AT&T network inside the stadium was 885 gigabytes. That is equivalent to 2.53 million social media posts with photos, the most ever for an NCAA Men’s Final Four.

– The in-stadium network and outdoor mobile networking in the parking lot carried 1.268 gigabytes for all three games, equivalent to more 4,143 hours of streaming HD video.

– Highest traffic came Saturday between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. with 81 gigabytes crossed the mobile network.

– The Wi-Fi network carried more than 4.03 terabytes of data during the three games, equivalent to 11.5 million social media posts with photos.

Even with the extra horsepower, there were reports that some were unable to connect inside the stadium.
