When Super Bowl 50 attendees weren't watching Sunday's game, they were watching their smart phones.

On Tuesday, Comcast Business, which provided broadband and Wi-Fi service to Levi's Stadium, said the 71,000 fans there that day downloaded or uploaded 10 terabytes worth of data during the game.

(Comcast Business also supplies broadband Internet to Sports Authority Field at Mile High.)

Some of those bytes was to feed the Super Bowl 50 stadium app, which let people order food, watch Super Bowl commercials and replays and check lines.

And of those, the top 10 bandwidth data-heavy moments were, from the highest to lowest:

1. The introduction of the 50 Super Bowl MVPs

2. Lady Gaga singing the National Anthem and the Blue Angels flyover

3. The opening kickoff

4. The first coach's challenge

5. Von Miller's forced fumble and the first touchdown of the game by Malik Jackson


6. The halftime show with Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars

7. Von Miller's second forced fumble and C.J. Anderson's game-sealing touchdown

8. Peyton Manning exiting the field and Gary Kubiak's Gatorade shower

9. The Lombardi Trophy presentation

10. Using apps to get back home and to hotels
