NEW research has suggested that a Cumbrian village is one of the best spots in the UK to buy a Glastonbury ticket this year.

Analysis from National Broadband has revealed the best and worst spots in the UK for getting a sought-after ticket in November.

The aptly named Glastonbury Ticket Scramble Matrix looks at median broadband speeds and estimated network traffic to highlight where the best and worst spots are to bag a ticket to Glastonbury this year.

Over 2.5 million people attempted to get their hands on only 135,000 tickets last year, giving the average person less than a 6 per cent chance of successfully purchasing a ticket.

Dalrymple in East Ayrshire topped the list, followed by Weeton-with-Preese in Lancashire and Burgh-by-Sands near Carlisle, which all combine high broadband speeds with low estimated network traffic.

David Hennell, director at National Broadband says: "Come June, Glastonbury is the place to be and for festival fans, these findings are somewhat alarming. With some places in the UK having median broadband speeds up to 40 times faster than others, many people aren't even in with a chance of securing the sought-after tickets."
