EE will provide 4G mobile broadband services as this summer's Glastonbury Festival, it has been announced.

The broadband provider - which takes over from sister brand Orange asthe official technology and communications partner for the event - will ensure festival-goers can take advantage of super-fast mobile broadband services on their mobile devices.

EE says it will be installing the first ever dedicated 4G network at a UK festival at the Worthy Farm site.

"4G users on site will be able to access super-fast 4G speeds, making staying in touch or sending that all important Tweet, video or status update faster than ever," the firm stated.

The broadband provider will also further increase its 2G and 3G network capacity, making staying connected at Glastonbury easier than ever before.

EE is also working with the festival organisers to produce the official 'Glastonbury 2013' mobile app. The firm says this will be "an indispensable electronic guide to the big event".

Set to go live in early June - and available free of charge - it will include performance scheduling tools, interactive and GPS enabled mapping, social network plug-ins, artist info and official updates.

Spencer McHugh, Brand Director at EE, commented that as "the UK’s biggest and only super-fast 4G network provider", his firm is "uniquely placed" to use its technological expertise to help make the Glastonbury experience even better for those on-site.

He added that EE will not only offer 4G coverage and the official festival app, but it will provide hundreds of charging points in its Recharge tents, and ensure festival-goers can upload and share all their photos and videos to social networking sites at super-fast speeds.

The Glastonbury Festival takes place between Wednesday June 26th and Sunday June 30th.
