In winter, about 80 people live in Villa las Estrellas, and in the summer this figure almost doubles. Due to the absence of a surgeon in the local hospital, all residents of the settlement, including children over 6 years old, are required to remove appendicitis. The settlement has a school, a church and a post office. For lovers of extreme travel, a small hostel for 20 guests and even a gift shop are open.
Oleg Reshetin, director of strategic development for the Tele2 product portfolio:
“It would seem, why in Antarctica roaming? However, our reports on roaming activity of subscribers sometimes can not help but surprise. A significant part of Tele2 subscribers is a young and active audience who loves extreme sports and unusual travels. These customers get to the Kamchatka hills, and to the Icelandic Torshavn. Nothing prevents the dream-dreamer from setting the next destination, the Villa-las-Estrellas settlement, where, by the way, the great Stephen Hawking once visited. And when this amazing event happens, Tele2 services will be available to our subscribers. ” antarctica roaming
