Bell releases staggering Vancouver Olympics wireless stats

Bell was a major sponsor of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and they’ve released some staggering information when it comes to wireless statistics.

Bell stated that during the Vancouver 2010 between February 12th to 28th their network had the following stats (I thought it would be higher for 2-weeks, especially the text messaging as New Years text stats sees way more alone in one day):
– 1 trillion packets of data traversed Bell’s Vancouver network
– 90 million minutes of mobile voice traffic
– 30 million megabytes of mobile data
– 65 million mobile text messages sent and received

Other non-wireless stats that Bell accomplished during the Olympics are:
– 750,000 calls made from 6,000 landline VOIP phones
– 4.9 billion bytes of data delivered to the Internet on behalf of the Games
– 1.2 million metres of Cat5 cabling installed to support 31,000 ethernet ports
– 300 million people visited vancouver2010.com – representing 1.1 billion page views
– An Olympic record-setting 24 billion bps of capacity connected Games broadcasters to the world
– 300 billion bps delivered to connect all venues for broadcast to the International Broadcast Centre
