MIAMI (AP) — AT&T says it spent $85 million in the past year to boost its network coverage and capacity at the Miami stadium where tens of thousands of fans will watch the Super Bowl next week. The company says it upgraded a portion of the Distributed Antenna System in the stadium  and parking lot to provide over 300% more capacity than was available at the start of football season.  The company has also upgraded and installed new DAS at more than two dozen locations, including hotels, airports, convention centers and practice fields. They're also working with the First Responder Network Authority by deploying Band 14 spectrum that can be cleared and locked in an emergency to help first responders.
