Ericsson as a partner of major French operators, has supplied 4G multi-standard radio solutions for all 10 stadiums hosting the 2016 European soccer championships.

Matches will take place from June 10, 2016 to July 10, 2016 in France, with venue capacities ranging from 33,000 to 81,000.

Hundreds of multi-standard radio stations have been installed at the stadiums, to make sharing pictures, short videos and social media content quicker and easier.

Franck Bouétard, head of Ericsson France, said: "4G mobile network capacities have been hugely improved at the venues and coverage has been strengthened. With this deployment, France is taking the lead in terms of mobile connectivity at sports venues - which is great news for fans."

In 2014, the World Cup in Brazil generated a staggering 26.7TB of data traffic, equivalent to 48.5 million photo uploads and 4.5 million voice calls.

The latest Ericsson Mobility Report reveals that mobile video consumption will drive around six times higher traffic per smartphone in Europe between now and 2021. In Western Europe, data traffic per active smartphone will grow from 2GB to 18GB per month over this period.
