Yellowstone National Park: Now with Wi-Fi?

If some officials at Yellowstone National Park get their way, you soon may be able to get a Wi-Fi signal while looking at Old Faithful. That's because the National Park Service is considering running a $34 million fiber-optic line through parts of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, a move supporters have suggested will make the parks more relevant to internet-savvy Millennials.

Other parks may get a technology upgrade, too, as the Park Service celebrates its centennial in 2016. While Wi-Fi advocates maintain that the service will be concentrated in the developed areas of the parks, opponents suggest the money would be better spent on infrastructure maintenance.
