In October 2010, A private Nepali telecom company Ncell took high speed Internet facilities to the top of the world. Ncell launched Nepal's first 3G services at the base camp of Mount Everest.

In order to make the 3G services available to locals and trekkers in the Khumbu area, Ncell has set up nine base stations -- in Lukla, Namche, Khumjung, Thame, Syanboche, Thyangboche, Kalapatthar, Phakding and Gorakshep.

P.S. I don't know how many Nepali Papers got this story ?
