When Oklahoma City Thunder fans attending playoff games at Chesapeake Energy Arena aren’t rooting for their team, many are using their smartphones, according to data from AT&T. Data usage by AT&T customers at the arena during playoffs games peaked during the final game of the first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies when 170 GB of data crossed AT&T’s Distributed Antenna System network. Data usage during each of this year’s six home playoffs games has averaged 154 GB per game. That’s about 28 percent higher than the usage during the final regular season game on April 16. Those attending the most recent Thunder game Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers used 148 GB, which would equate to about 425,000 social media posts with photos, AT&T said.
