Mobile network EE has kicked off trials of its 4G+ network at Wembley Stadium, demonstrating mobile speeds in excess of 400Mbps as part of its sponsorship of the iconic stadium.
4G+ is set to be switched on for fan use at Wembley Stadium in March, doubling the mobile data capacity and enabling stunning audio-visual experiences at gigs as part of EE's technical program that aims to make Wembley the most connected stadium in the world.
The 4G+ launch comes from EE's work with Qualcomm and Huawei, and makes use of more of the spectrum to provide better speed and increased capacity, which prove essential for delivering mobile connectivity to large crowds.
"We have established ourselves as the most advanced and innovative network in Europe, and we will continue to stay ahead of the curve, in terms of both speed and capacity," said Fotis Karonis, CTO for EE. "Smarter devices with more data intensive video and audio demands are launching all the time, and it's trials like these at Wembley Stadium that allow us to ensure EE customers continue to get the very best experiences from their mobile network now and in the future.
"This is a showcase of what a truly amazing 4G network can do, and is a big step in our ambition to make Wembley Stadium the most connected stadium in the world."
