Tsering G. Sherpa, CEO, Everest Link: “Given our hostile terrain, there are areas where to check on your system, it may take a couple of days of hard work just to get there. But today, we’ve deployed over 200 hotspots in more than 40 villages. We connect 34,000 locals and over 40,000 tourists annually, which is a new record for tourism. We also reach more than 1,600 climbers on the various mountains including Everest. Our goal is to give them a perfect connection across the toughest terrain in the world. With the PTP 650 we have a solid link all the time – it gives us high throughput and perfect reliability. At the moment, we’re connected to the Everest base camp. There, at 5,320 meters altitude, we have a solar powered cnPilot™ e500 outdoor Wi-Fi hotspot.”

Everest Link’s commitment to their community doesn’t stop at providing connectivity to support the tourism industry. High speed connectivity has offered solutions to many regional challenges. They’ve begun a distance-learning program because few teachers are available for remote Himalayan schools. To further bolster the local economy, the ISP has made every hotel and business entity in their coverage area a stakeholder – making Everest Link a truly community-oriented company.
