Tanzania's information ministry has installed high-speed internet to serve climbers on Africa's tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
Right now, the coverage is good up to 12,000 feet, which provides coverage for about two-thirds of the mountain.
Plans to extend the coverage to Uhuru Peak, next door, at 19,000 feet are in place for the end of the year.
The move has been welcomed in Tanzania as a boost to tourism, but others wish there was better access in remote villages.
