Wifi Internet for Nepal Yak Farmers


"Yak farmers in the mountains of Nepal are using wireless internet technology to keep in touch with their families.
They are taking advantage of a wi-fi network set up in a remote region of the mountain kingdom where there are no phones or other means of communication.
It is the result of a campaign led by local teacher Mahabir Pun, and backed by volunteers and donations, to bring the internet to an isolated part of the world.
", reports BBC.
