Mahabir Pun’s Wireless Nepal Project is an NGO founded in Nangi that is attempting to bring wireless Internet connections and information and communication technology infrastructures to all the villages in Nepal. Ten years in, the project has expanded to over 150 mountain villages and it continues to grow. Mahabir’s own village Nangi is home to the Himanchal Computer Lab as well as a government cell tower. These technological catalysts have the potential to accelerate a number of development initiatives but require a knowledgeable user base. This paper examines the impact and usage of mentioned information and communication technologies in Nangi.
