Glastonbury Festival revellers predicted to use 15TB of data

Glastonbury Festival goers are expected to use 15 terabytes of data over five days.

Mobile network operator EE - who will be installing the UK's largest temporary 4G network at Worthy Farm - have predicted that the 135,000 attendees will use the hefty sum of data over the course of the festival, a sum equivalent to uploading 63 million selfies.

Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said: "People in the UK are using their mobiles more than ever before to share cherished experiences. 2016 has already seen 4G data usage increase by at least 40% at other major events year on year and this trend shows no sign of slowing down.

"Each year social media feeds all over the world are flooded with images and videos of Glastonbury Festival so, in anticipation of the huge demand we expect to see at Worthy Farm this June, we've tripled our 4G capacity thanks to a number of new innovative network technologies."
