Tsering G. Sherpa, Chief Executive Officer of Everest Link, shares his story on bringing high-speed broadband connectivity to the Himalayas.

Everest Link got our sort of strange start back in 2000, but before I tell the story of my company, I’d love to describe the terrain of my country. Nepal is a place where it’s not easy to get around; the only modes of transportation are either helicopters or your feet, and the only medium of communication was the written letter until the year 2000. Let me tell you how we evolved from letters to wireless broadband all at once.
