Mount fuji
Mount Fuji now gets its own internet connection – and it’s not even the weirdest place in the world where you can send Facebook updates from.
  The Japanese government installed a wifi connection up the mountain, so that people can stay connected even as they ascend and then come back down.
  Though the wifi connection has been mocked as just a way of letting people post their celebratory Instagram snaps just a little earlier, it could actually keep those climbing the mountain safe. They’ll be able to look out for weather warnings and take shelter accordingly, and the wifi will let people call for help even if they’re out of range of a phone connection.
  The wifi is available in a series of spots along the ascent, and protected with a special password. It will only be free for the first 72 hours after people connect.
  Fuji joins a list of other places around the world – and above it – that have their own wifi connections.

Other mountains

Mount Qomolangma has had wifi since 2010, when a company installed hotspots on it. The highest hotspot on the mountain (and presumably the world) is 17,000 feet up, at the last base camp that people visit before they make their last push for the top.
2010年,一间公司在珠穆朗玛峰(Mount Qomolangma)上安装了无线热点,从那时起,山上就有了wifi。最高热点海拔为1.7万英尺(或为世界最高),位于人们向山顶发起最终冲刺时所建的最后营地处。

North Pole
One of the coldest places on Earth was quick to get a hotspot: the North Pole has been wired up for internet since 2005. It’s very tough on computers to actually work somewhere so cold, and people aren’t actually there much of the time.

On donkeys in Israel
  An Israeli theme park called Kfar Kedem aims to show people what life was like in Galilee 2,000 years ago – they can make traditional food and milk goats, for instance. But there are also donkeys with wifi hotspots attached to them wandering round, if the old-style living gets a little much.
以色列一间名为克法凯登(Kfar Kedem)的主题公园希望向人们展示2,000年前加利利(Galilee)地区的生活面貌。比如,(在这里)人们可以制作传统食物,还能挤羊奶。不过,如果旧式生活方式(体验)再多上一些的话,公园就会有装上WiFi热点的毛驴四处跑了。

In space
The International Space Station has the most distant internet connection in the world. The crew don’t actually use the internet connection themselves – instead connecting to another computer on the ground that they can remotely control, using it to tweet among other things.
