Yellowstone officials, watchdog group trade barbs over wifi expansion in NP

An environmental group’s press release criticizing Yellowstone National Park’s consideration of adding Wi-Fi to developed areas has drawn a strong rebuke from park officials and a counterpoint press release.


The park is considering whether to allow AccessParks to install equipment to supply high-speed internet to park visitors and employees. “Equipment needs for this project include five microwave antenna locations, 12 wireless backhaul antennas ranging between three and six feet in diameter, and up to 480 transceivers of 11 inch-diameter or less installed on receiving structures,” according to a park press release.
