AT&T is making sure that fans headed to the College Football National Championship in Tampa will be able to share selfies, post videos and stay connected by boosting their mobile internet coverage the moment they arrive.

The company has made permanent and temporary upgrades throughout Tampa Bay to keep their customers connected all weekend. 

Two Cell on Wheels have been deployed to keep fans connected. They help improve reliability and data speeds. 

The Distributed Antenna System has been upgraded at Raymond James Stadium to help manage the wireless capacity in heavily-trafficked areas. 

They have done a 400% boost in LTE capacity to improve speeds so that you can post all the selfies, photos, videos and share the experience with your network.
