According to Tibet Regional Telecommunications Bureau on Wednesday, about 99 percent of administrative villages in Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region have broadband internet access.

By the end of 2018, Tibet provided 5,158 villages with universal access to broadband services and faster optical fiber connections under a universal telecom service project, said Feng Wenyong, head of the bureau.

Only 52 villages remained without such access due to relocation and inconvenient roads, said Feng.

All the administrative villages in Tibet will be connected with broadband under the project, which is estimated to cost 3 billion yuan ($471 million) and began in 2016.

Currently, broadband has reached 782,000 families in Tibet, with every 100 households owning 80.91 fixed-line broadband internet connections. Mobile broadband, encompassing 3G and 4G networks, has reached 2.755 million families, accounting for 83.35 percent of the total.

The bureau is working to offer 4G connections to 301 administrative villages, 20 natural villages with each having more than 20 families, 16 outposts and two border roads.

By the end of 2019, the vast region will see universal access to broadband internet for all its impoverished villages which meet relevant requirements. And the bureau is considering including Tibet in the pilot programs for 5G, according to Feng.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Mo***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Sorry we do not have any group tour in Jan or Feb to Kailash as there will be heavy snow and the road will be blocked, and also the area would be closed, and no one do the business there, no hotel, no restaurants there. So from Nov to March we would not send any groups there.
If you would like to do this tour, you must plan it from April to Oct. and at present we have the group tour in next 6th May and 29th May, and we will have more available date in future. if you are interested in joining in this, please kindly let me know. Best regards.
