(CNN) — Sunday’s Super Bowl will be the first with 5G.

Hard Rock Stadium, the Miami Airport, and much of the city are being outfitted with the new technology.

Fans will need a 5G device to connect to it Sunday.

Verizon says they will get download speeds of up to a gigabyte a second.

Sports franchises hope the tech will encourage people to buy tickets, and otherwise engage with teams.
