Cell Access on Mt Everest

Mt. EverestIn getting ready for the upcoming 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China Mobile has successfully tested a cell station on top of Mt. Everest — it is the highest mobile phone base station. The station has already been constructed and tested, and is now packed away until after the winter because of the cold temperatures throughout the winter. It will be reassembled in time for the Olympics.
