Free super-fast Wi-Fi will be available at this year's Glastonbury Festival, courtesy of a herd of cows.

EE has created the fibre-glass cows - decorated by festival artist Hank Kruger - and equipped them with 4G networking equipment, reports the Telegraph.

This means they will serve as super-fast Wi-Fi hotspots during this week's festival, which takes place on the 1,200-acre Worthy Farm in Somerset.

Festival-goers will be able to get online on their tablets and smartphones, to check out the latest Glastonbury information and gossip, and post photos and videos on social media.

Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said staying connected "has become an essential part of any festival-goer's experience".

"We are thrilled to be back supporting Glastonbury Festival, helping to ensure those on-site have the best possible experience," he stated.

"Worthy Farm's famous dairy herd are award-winning, much like our super-fast 4G network, and we wanted to have some fun this year while providing a much-needed service."
