Chinese companies China Mobile and Huawei have launched 5G Internet at the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest.
China Mobile and Huawei have built the base station of 5G Internet at an altitude of 6,500 meters on the Tibet side of Mount Everest. Which is the highest 5G station in the world.
With the launch of the Gigabit optical fiber network at an altitude of 6,500 meters, China Mobile will now be able to operate its dual Gigabit network as far as Everest, according to Huawei.
The base station of China Mobile’s dual gigabit network is located at an altitude of 5,300 meters. Similarly, the transition camp is at an altitude of 5,800 meters.
Dozens of network experts have been deployed in the construction and operation of the 5G network, which has been extended to the heights of Everest, and the network will be available round the clock, Huawei said.
In the base camp area, the download speed of the 5G network is 1.66 gigabits per second and the upload speed is 215 megabits per second, according to Huawei.
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest from Northern Ridge, China has brought 5G Internet to the summit of Mount Everest.
Huawei says that the availability of 5G network in Everest will also help in accurate measurement of the height of Everest.
