Pakistan installs 4G Mobile Tower at K2 base camp!

With the installation of the tower, SCO has started providing mobile and data services at the K2 base camp, the world’s second-largest peak, and Concordia glacier in Shigar.

The mobile tower has been installed by the Ministry of Interior department namely, Special Communication Organization (SCO) and has started providing cellular and internet services.

This became possible as the government of Gilgit-Baltistan has provided support to Special Communication Organisation (SCO) for the installation of this SCOM Tower to ensure a communication facility at K2 Base Camp.

SCO in a statement said: Our 4G reach is now in K2 base camp & Concordia glacier. The mobile coverage & internet access will prove to be a highly monumental and pivotal source for mountaineers and trekking groups to stay connected with their families and assist in emergency situations.
