FESTIVAL goers attending this year’s Glastonbury used a record amount of mobile data as thousands shared photos and videos of their favourite acts, EE has revealed.
The network said it experienced a huge 76 percent increase in data consumption compared with the last event before Covid in 2019.
In totaal, the firm alone handled 182 terabytes of data.
That’s the equivalent to viewing 7.2billion Instagram posts across the weekend or downloading the Beatles‘s hit Hey Jude 5.4million.
Demand has rocketed due to attendees increasingly sharing content from big events on social media.
EE, which is the technology partner for Glastonbury, also released a planning app for the festival.

“With so many new and exciting ways for Festival goers to share their Glastonbury experiences with friends and family, it’s no wonder that every year we see the demand for data increasing,” said EE’s Pete Jeavons.
“This legendary Festival is one of the most exciting places on the planet for music fans, and our data shows that people are as keen as ever to use our technology to make the most of their time at Worthy Farm; it makes us all really proud to see how many people benefitted from the ability to plan their line ups and catch their favourite artists.”
Ek is so jammer dit klink aaklig
EE also had a recharge tent for anybody to power up their smartphone.
Amper 12,000 people made use of it throughout the festival.
