EE tests connected camping at Glastonbury

Monday 19 June 2017 | 15:56 CET | News
EE is testing new smart home technologies with a connected camping tent at the Glastonbury festival. The 4GEE Smart Tent uses the mobile operator's 4G network to support features such as a daytime Wi-Fi hotspot, a mini fridge that tweets when stocks are running low, an entertainment centre that will show the BBC’s live streams of the festival, Google Daydream headsets to watch virtual reality content captured on site, voice-activated lighting and a connected security camera that will send footage from the tent to a mobile app. The connected tent will also feature a number of solar powered technologies including a boot warmer, fans and tea kettle. 

EE will give away one night free in the tent and a spot to watch the main Pyramid stage from the side of the stage to any Glastonbury ticket holder responding to EE's Twitter feed the day before the festival starts. The winner will also receive a new Google Pixel phone.
