EE bringing 4G to Glastonbury
EE will build a 4G network for this year's Glastonbury Festival and provide two charging tents for festivalgoers to top up their device's battery.
The operator has been named the official technology and communications partner of the five day music event, which will take place from 26-30 June. The relationship follows that of EE's sister brand Orange. The operator will also run a number of competitions via its Twitter and Facebook accounts for the public to win tickets to the sold out event. Among the acts performing with be The Rolling Stones, marking the first time the band has played the festival in its 51 year history.
Spencer McHugh, brand director at EE, said: 'As the UK’s biggest and only superfast 4G network, we’re uniquely placed to use our technological expertise to help make the Glastonbury experience even better for those on site; from producing the feature packed official app for the festival, providing hundreds of charging points on site in our Recharge tents, through to ensuring festival goers can upload and share all their festival photos and videos to social networking sites at superfast speeds.'
