We had started the Nepal Wireless Networking Project as a pilot project from a small and remote area of Nepal with the help of foreign supporters and volunteers. We did several testing in 2002 to find out if it is possible to connect the villages to the nearest ISP in Pokhara. The test was successful. That time we did not know at all how useful a wireless network can be for the rural people. We did not even thought that we would be able to build wireless networks in different parts of Nepal.
The villages are wirelessly networked and connected to an ISP WorldLink, which is approx. 22 air miles (~34 km) away from Relay Station 1, in a city called Pokhara. Wlink is one of the sponsors of the broadband Internet connection to the villages in Myagdi district Nepal.
In September 2003, we had connected five villages of Myagdi district. In 2004, we became able to connect 7 villages. In 2006 we connected 6 more villages. Now we have connected altogether 22 villages of Myagdi, Kaski and Parbat district. We helped to build a similar wireless network in Makawanpur district connecting 7 villages, and in Palpa district connecting 4 villages.
