Internet connectivity along the E. Base Camp Trail

hi. I will be doing this trek from Lukla / Namche / Phortse / Dingboche / Lobuche / GorakShep / EBC. In October 2011. What's the current state of affairs in regards to Internet facilities - wifi , cyber cafes and the like ? Does an iPad work up there ? ( will batteries seize up ? ) Thanks. Michael

On My Personal opinion And Experience Lukla , Namche had better connectivity Than Other big cities Like Kathmandu/Pokhara

Please Do not Miss the ' StarBucks Cafe in Lukla for good coffee , free wifi.

Enjoy EBC

There is wifi in pretty much every town along EBC - but you will pay for it!! In the higher towns like Lobuche and Gorak Shep it is around Rs.500 for 30 minutes. In Lukla you can get it for Rs.500 for the whole day. You also have to pay to charge your laptop/iPad etc. Around Rs.150/hr

The fastest and easiest connection I found was using the little internet cafe in Namche. Very cheap and reasonable speed
