5G reception on Mount Everest – PC WORLD


Two Chinese cell phone providers erect 5G masts on the highest mountain in the world at over 5000 meters.

On May 29, 1953
                                             New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay were the first people to conquer Mount Everest, then also known as the “third pole” (in addition to the north and south poles). The news that the 8848-meter-high mountain was conquered by a member of the Commonwealth reached the British on the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation on June 2, 1953. Their joy was great since they were already racing for the North and South Poles had lost. Edmund Hillary (after whom the rock step in the summit ridge was named: “Hillary Step”) was knighted. The Sherpa Tenzing Norgay received only one medal for his performance.

Since this masterpiece, many climbers have been drawn to Mount Everest, including Reinhold Messner, who climbed all 14 eight-thousanders and, together with Peter Habeler, were the first to reach the summit without additional oxygen (in 1980, even the first to go it alone, again without artificial oxygen). In 1975 the Japanese woman Junko Tabei became the first woman to climb Mount Everest. In 2001 Erik Weihenmayer was the first blind man on the mountain. The time window with favorable weather conditions for a summit storm runs from the end of April to the end of May. In 2019 climbed during this period

                                            , technology has now even made it to the mountain. On Saturday, the Chinese telecommunications group Huawei and the mobile operator China Mobile announced that three 5G transmission masts had been erected on the north side of the mountain at an altitude of over 5000 meters. For this, 25 kilometers of fiber optic cables were laid. As a result of the connection to the network, mountaineers and scientists are no longer bound to the heavy and expensive satellite telephones and can also use the Internet services with light equipment. Even a YouTube live stream is possible. However, the masts are not intended for permanent use, but primarily for the new measurement of Mount Everest and should be dismantled again this year.
