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

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

But now it’s possible to live stream the rise.

A high-speed fiber optic network is now being operated 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, Communications and Information Technology, tweeted the announcement last week.

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

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