As for better speed all along the trail to Everest Trek, you will find an Everest Link WiFi for which you need to get a re-charge card which costs you around NPR 600-800. This Wi-Fi works quite well and after using the card of the Everest Link wifi, it works for only 24 hours meaning as you login with the code to the wifi it will be valid for a single day.
