Herd of 'high-speed cows' to provide superfast broadband at Glastonbury
Glastonbury Festival attendees will be able to access superfast broadband thanks to a herd of technical cows.Glastonbury Festival begins tomorrow (25 June 2014) and with it, more than 100,000 music fans will be descending on organiser Michael Eavis' dairy farm in rural Somerset wishing to upload their experiences to various online platforms.
To allow them to do this quickly, mobile network provider EE has erected a series of fibreglass cow statues across the festival site, which will act as free Wi-Fi hotspots, enabling attendees to access superfast broadband.
Having a high-speed internet connection at Worthy Farm will allow visitors to keep in touch with friends and family via social media, as well as being able to upload photos of their experiences extremely quickly.
To keep with the festival theme and so as not to look out of place on the farm, Glastonbury's onsite artist Hank - who paints the iconic colourful bins for the event - has decorated the 4GEE Highspeed Herd in bright hues.
He commented: "It's not the first cow I've ever painted, but it's certainly the most high-tech."
The cows will be dotted around the site, allowing Glastonbury-goers to log on to any mobile network via any device and enjoy a 4GEE superfast broadband connection.
