Tanzania's state telecommunications firm has installed high-speed internet connectivity on the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, through a national broadband project.
Information Minister Nape Nnauye launched the internet project on Tuesday saying tourists would soon be able to communicate worldwide from the summit of the mountain. Mr Nnauye said internet connectivity on the mountain was expected to reach its highest point, Uhuru peak, at 5,895m (19,341 ft) above sea level in October.
It will be interesting to see how the mountains relationship with social media develops... for good or bad.
