Okeechobee music festival fans used 3.69 terabytes of cell data, AT&T says

Fans at the inaugural Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival used enough cell phone data to upload 10.5 million posts to social media sites, according to AT&T.

About 30,000 concert-goers flocked to a rural grove in Okeechobee County this month to attend the three day event.

AT&T installed a mobile cell phone tower on the 800-acre property to help boost cell and data coverage. The company said this week that more than 3.69 terabytes of data crossed its mobile network covering the festival.

According to AT&T, 3.69TB is equal to 10.5 million social media posts with photos.

More than 100 bands were expected to take part in the Okeechobee music festival, including headliners Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, The Avett Brothers, Hall & Oates, Ween, Miguel and Fetty Wap.
