EE to bring 4G to Glastonbury Festival

EE Glastonbury festival

The 4G network EE has been announced as the "technology and communications partner" at this year's Glastonbury festival. The Worthy Farm site will offer 4G users access to the superfast 4G network so if you are using a Samsung Galaxy S4 or Sony Xperia SP on EE you can still get access to your fast network whilst at the festival. 

Users of other networks utilsiing 2G and 3G can enjoy increased network capacity, great for when you want to call and share your favourite act on stage which, this year, includes headline act The Rolling Stones. 

The Glastonbury 2013 app is also being developed in conjunction with the EE network and the app will deliver performance scheduling, so you don't miss your favourite bands and there will be GPS mapping for finding your way around the site. The app will also feature social network plug ins and updates from the Glastonbury team so you can enjoy the buildup before and during the event.

Glastonbury takes place from Wednesday 26th June and the app is expected to be available for download earlier that month.

EE will also be offering "EE Recharge" tents so users can chill out whilst their mobile batteries get recharged, this will be free to users on all networks.

For those that are not currently using the superfast 4G service, EE will be offering festival goers a taster with the recharge tents offering mobile Wi-Fi service using the 4G network - so you can sample the 4G service even if you are not with EE.
