Glastonbury sponsor EE is again taking steps to ensure festival-goers can stay connected and get online during their trip to Worthy Farm.

As preparations for next month's event continue, the mobile broadband provider is installing the infrastructure required for 4G connectivity on-site.

Six mobile masts, located around the festival site, will ensure campers can get online and take advantage of super-fast broadband.

They will be able to upload pictures and videos, and update their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds, at any time of their choosing.

As well as offering super-fast mobile connectivity - and gearing up to carry three terabytes of data over its Glastonbury network - EE is installing mobile charging points around the camp.

These will ensure guests can charge their tablets and smartphones, for use across the entire weekend.

EE is also ramping up its EE Power Bar operation for 2015, following its successful launch last year. The mobile charging scheme proved so popular that it has been rolled out as a year-round loyalty initiative for all customers.

There will be two exchange points this year for registered users, able to accommodate over 200,000 Power Bar swaps during the festival weekend.

Mobile users can charge their mobile device on the go with the bar and then, once it runs out of juice, swap it for a fully-charged one.

Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said that, in 2014, customers uploaded the equivalent of 1.5 million pictures during the festival and downloaded 2.5 terabytes of data.

"To meet this demand we are rolling out the EE Power Bar swap scheme on an unprecedented scale," he noted.

"For us, this is just the next step in making the UK’s best-loved festival even better connected.”
