EE expects Glastonbury fans to use 15 TB data

Wednesday 25 May 2016 | 10:34 CET | News
EE expects the 135,000 festival-goers expected at Glastonbury 2016 will use 15 TB of data via its 4G network over the course of the five days. Festival-goers will use EE's 4G network to share twice as much content in five days as people across the whole of Bristol. EE starts planning for the temporary 4G network at Glastonbury nine months before the festival and installation of the high capacity mobile base stations commences four weeks before.
