Climbers, hikers, and adventure enthusiasts now have one less thing to worry about as they trek up Mount Kilimanjaro: Wi-Fi access.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain and the world’s largest free-standing mountain, has a new broadband network which will enable climbers to access reliable Wi-Fi internet, a Tanzanian government official announced this week.

Nape Moses Nnauye, Tanzania’s minister Of communication and information technology, tweeted the announcement with a photo in which he posed with several hikers.

Nnauye wrote that the hikers were “enjoying” the service so far.

Mount Kilimanjaro is not the only mountain with Wi-Fi enabled services. Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, had internet access available for users as early as 2010.

Located in Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is a popular hiking spot for locals and tourists, and because mountain gear is not necessary to reach the peak, tens of thousands make their way up the mountain each year.
