(CMR) 5G technology is now available on Mount Everest.
This comes as tech company Huawei in collaboration with China Mobile completed building three base stations along the climbing route of the mountain last Thursday.
The new developments mean that individuals will now be able to enjoy super-fast internet access in such high regions.
“China Mobile and Huawei have jointly taken 5G connectivity to a new height by bringing the network to the summit of Mount Everest upon the completion of the world’s highest 5G base station on the altitude of 6500 meters,” read a release published by Huawei on April 30.
According to the tech company, the base stations were built on Mount Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5,300 metres, one at the Transition Camp at 5,800 metres, and another at the Forward Camp at 6,500 metres.
“Huawei’s 5G AAU and SPN technologies are applied at these base stations, where network maintenance and optimisation are done by a dozen of network specialists who station 24/7 in regions at altitude of 5,300 meters and above to ensure smooth network operations,” added Huawei in the release.
Huawei said it strongly believes that such technology will help to make the world better.
