Glastonbury is one of the biggest music festivals in the world, making it the perfect place for EE to test its 5G network.
While the 5G network is supposed to make it easier for festival goers to get online, it seems that many residents of the local town are sceptical of the service.
Several petitions have appeared on Change.org, urging for 5G to be banned at the festival.
