Japan's snow-covered Mount Fuji is one of most famous mountains in world. Nearly 300,000 people climb to top of 3,776-meter mountain every year. Now they can tweet about their experience or post pictures on Facebook from top of Mount Fuji. Japan's biggest telecommunications company, NTT DoCoMo, has launched free Wi-Fi service along slopes of Fuji. Climbers can access free Wi-Fi service at eight different hotspots on mountain, as well as summit. The Wi-Fi will only be available for three months, which is length of climbing season. Once users log on, they will have 72 hours of free access to the Internet from mountain.

Hundreds of thousands of people climb Mount Fuji every year. number has increased since mountain became UNESCO World Heritage site two years ago. United Nations said Fuji was important symbol of Japan. Local authorities hope free Wi-Fi service will help keep climbers safe on mountain. People will be able to check for weather warnings and find shelter. They will also be able to call for help even if their phone loses its signal. Fuji is not highest place in world to have Wi-Fi hotspots. Mount Everest in Himalayas has hotspot at last base camp, which is 5,148 metres high. The North Pole and International Space Station also have hotspots.
