Dharamshala, the home of Dalai Lama in India is fully covered with wireless connection. Here, the head priest teaches his followers through computers.
This is thanks to two Israelis, Yahel Ben David and Michael Ginguld, who developed the Wi-Fi network for the town. Now the town has a low-cost Wi-Fi network spread over 70 acres, more than 7,000 ft above sea level. The 50-node wireless mesh network interconnects around 2,000 computers. Apart from dependable broadband internet access, it provides for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services, video conferencing, off-site backups and playback of videos from remote archives. The wireless connection run from a room in a local school for Tibetan children. Several schools, NGOs and hospitals have benefited from this service. Since the network has limited bandwidth, so it is not useful for laptop carrying tourists.
