    Too many people in too small an area, clogs the tubes.

    US Cellular has put portable cell towers around the stadium for the last few years, but still the demand makes for slow going...

    Re: No cell service during game

    Verizon had a portable tower in G7 last week, but it had not been raised or the generator started before we left to go into the game.

    I have US Cellular and was unable to connect to the internet on my phone while in the stadium. My wife had trouble sending picture messages also.

    It doesn't seem to be an issue at a major airport.

    I haven't had any major issues with US Cell. SOmetimes halftime gets quite a bit slower.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Airports are full of those people every day, so they build the infrastructure to support it. JTS has this many people 6-7 days a year.

    Us Cellular has atleast one mobile tower parked outside the stadium so I assume that's why they'd be better.

    I get call coverage fine with Sprint inside the stadium, but my data speeds are so slow it's basically not usable.

    The only time Verizon has let me down has been at JT so I guess I can live with it.
