Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak in Tanzania, now has Wi-Fi

For generations, climbers of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, have had to rely on still images to document their journey.

But now it is possible to live stream the rise.

A high-speed fiber optic network is now in place by the state-owned Tanzania Telecommunications Corp.

It allows climbers to access Wi-Fi up to 12,205 feet, two-thirds of the way up.

Nape Moses Nnauye, Tanzania’s Minister of Information, Communication and Information Technology, tweeted the announcement last week.

He then posted a photo of himself with hikers saying they appreciate the service.

The hope is to extend that signal to the summit, which is 19,340 feet above sea level, by the end of the year.
