Still Waters Posted August 18, 2022 #1 Share Posted August 18, 2022 (IP: Staff) · Tanzania has installed high-speed internet services on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, allowing anyone with a smartphone to tweet, Instagram or WhatsApp their ascent up Africa’s highest mountain. The state-owned Tanzania Telecommunications Corporation set up the broadband network on Tuesday at an altitude of 3,720 metres (12,200ft), with the country’s information minister, Nape Nnauye, calling the event historic. “Previously, it was a bit dangerous for visitors and porters who had to operate without internet,” he said at the launch of the service, flanked by government officials and tourists. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/aug/18/mount-kilimanjaro-broadband-internet-climbers-instagram-tanzania 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
