4G tractor at Glastonbury
Mobile phone network EE will be providing high speed Wi Fi to music fans at this week's Glastonbury festival via a 4G tractor
If you've got tickets to Glastonbury but were worried you wouldn't be able to tweet pics of your favourite band or upload a video of your mates sloshing about in the mud, then rest assured, Everything Everywhere has you covered.
The mobile network operator will be doing its bit to ensure Glastonbury Festival attendees will have high-speed Wi-Fi coverage, courtesy of a tractor that has been converted into a roving Wi-Fi hotspot.
The tractor, which was provided by Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis, has been fitted with EE's network equipment that will provide Internet access to any punters within a 10 metre radius of it.
"We couldn't be more excited about this year's Glastonbury where we will be installing the first ever superfast 4G network at a UK festival to help those on-site stay connected," said EE brand director Spencer McHugh.
"Our 4G tractor demonstrates the innovative approach we're taking to bring the fastest mobile internet speeds to the UK in a uniquely Glastonbury way and uses similar technology to our fleet of 4G cabs trialled earlier this year."
It may be worth following EE on twitter this weekend if you plan to attend the festival as the mobile network provider will be tweeting updates about the tractor's location as it trundles around the fields.
