Does Mount Kilimanjaro have high-speed Internet?

Answer: Apparently so.

Wi-Fi Signal
There’s really nothing we can’t connect if we try hard enough. The highest mountain in Africa, summited by tens of thousands of tourists each year, now has high-speed Internet.

Tanzania Telecommunications Corporation, the state-owned utility of Tanzania, where Kilimanjaro is located, last week completed and activated the network up to 3,795 meters (12,450 feet) above sea level. The goal is to eventually get all the way to the tallest point on the mountain, Uhuru Peak, at 5,895 meters (19,340 feet).

But this connectivity isn’t just to make it easier to upload to your Instagram. Bringing reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi to the mountain also improves safety. Guides and tourists can more easily access navigation tools to make sure they don’t get lost, update friends and family on their location, and get help if they need it.

Just don’t forget to get the Wi-Fi password before you start climbing.
