Some know us for our striking aqua posters. Others for being 4G pioneers. While many just think of Kevin Bacon dancing in red spandex. And those people are right; we are those things. But here at EE, we like to think there’s a little bit more to us than that – certainly more than just mobile phones!
Had you heard, for instance, that The Sunday Times rated us the 3rd best big company to work for in 2017? Did you know we created the world’s first selfie robot? Yes, you heard right – a selfie-taking robot! (But more about that later…)
And that’s just the start. Here are a few interesting things you might not know about the world of EE…
We work with the BIGGEST name in live music
We might be the new kids on the block in the mobile world – having just celebrated our 5th birthday – but we’re beyond our years when it comes to working the biggest and best names in entertainment!
Music lover? Then you’d be interested to know that we’re the official technology and communications partner for Glastonbury Festival. Each year, we take our free-to-all Recharge Tent and network masts down to Worthy Farm to supply revellers with enough battery and signal to film, snap and share their stories the entire weekend – from opening act to Sunday headliner. This has helped Glastonbury Festival become the most socially shared music event in the world. An immense 54 terabytes of data was used at this year’s festival – more than doubling 2016's usage. So unless you’re lucky enough to nab a ticket, best stay off Facebook for the last weekend every June to avoid that green-eyed monster.
