K2 Base Camp Gets Its First 4G Transceiver

In line with the government’s vision of promoting tourism across the country, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and telecom operators are focusing on improving telecommunication services in areas that are full of tourism potential.

A 4G Base Transceiver Station (BTS) has been installed at the K2 Base camp area of Concordia to provide better communication facilities to mountaineers and trekkers. The site is called ‘Ali Sadpara’ in memory of the late high-altitude mountaineer who vanished on K2 this year.
