Nepal Doorsanchar Company Limited (Nepal Telecom, or NT) and Gilat Satellite Networks have successfully deployed the latter’s SkyEdge broadband satellite network to Gorakshep, the village closest to the Everest base camp. The new network will provide high quality voice and data services using Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) technology. NT says the Gorakshep installation forms part of its wider Gilat network rollout announced last year, which is designed to help the telco meet its Universal Service Obligations for voice and broadband data connectivity.
