EE prepares for expected 33% increase in Glastonbury traffic

Thursday 25 May 2017 | 13:42 CET | News
EE announced that it will be the official technology and communications partner for Glastonbury for a fifth year and said it expects to see record mobile traffic at the festival. From 21-25 June, the network expects to see 40 TB of data used across its 4G network, or a third more than in 2016. In addition to boosting temporary capacity in the area, EE is also installing the first permanent network mast on the Glastonbury site, to ensure 4G coverage is there all year round, not just for festival-goers.
