Everest: Mobile Reception in Nepalese Base Camp

Kathmandu: The Nepalese net-provider Ncell has installed antenna poles around the Mount Everest Base Camp on 5200m above sea level that should provide mobile and internet reception for mountaineers up to the last part of their ascends. Until now this was only possible with expensive and heavy satellite-phones.

 

Ncell a subsidiary of the Swedish net-provider TeliaSoneira has installed 7 antenna poles. Every year thousands of tourists visit the Base Camp and several hundred are starting to ascend the top. The Base Camp on the northern side in Tibet has mobile reception for years.
