21 May 5G to Hit Glastonbury – Thank You, EE
5G. It’s the dream that’s now just within reach, and people are so excited to be able to get access to it for themselves. All the major mobile phone providers are working hard to make sure that 5G can come out to the general public and be flawless, which is why we’ve seen a lot of trial runs conducted recently.
One such location where this is the case is Glastonbury, which is set to be the festival where EE offers exclusive access to their 5G network. It’s going to be a place to be, and we’re going to be covering what it is that they’ve got on offer here and now.
Festival Fun and Good Network Coverage
So, there’s no doubt that when it comes to festivals and getting the most out of them, Glastonbury Festival is considered to be one of the best in the business. It’s a location which is well known for offering so much in the way of activities and a vibrant atmosphere, and it’s always packed to the brim with people.
To be honest, that’s probably why it’s been selected as the trial site for EE’s 5G network. In addition to their regular services which they offer to people at Glastonbury, they’ve also made sure that people who want to access 5G can do just that. Via the installation of 4 new masts at strategic places inside the festival, they can temporarily generate a 5G network which will encapsulate everyone inside of it.
Of course, we’re a company which is pretty interested in the ‘why’. Why is this happening? Why are they doing what they’re doing? Well, there’s a couple of different reasons that we’d like to mull over, and they all point towards a smart decision by EE.
Think about it like this. The 5G network isn’t tested properly. It’s not adequately released to the public yet. But this does allow EE the chance to collect some valuable information about the network and how it performs under intense pressure. A lot of people at the festival will be EE customers, and so they’ll be able to get onto the network and explore it for themselves. So what this festival does is provide people with an excellent chance to explore the system, see how well it can do, and then correct any slight issues that it may have. From a perspective of analysis, it’s genius.
All things considered, there is no doubt that this is an excellent choice which will only serve to accentuate just how well the company is doing, and we’ll be quite keen to see how well things go when it comes to testing out the network at Glastonbury. You know that social media usage will be high and demand will be considerable, so this is the perfect time to make sure that the network can work well and people can use it without issues. EE have certainly chosen an event which is going to be good for press too!
