We’ve all been there – you’re at the national park and want to take a selfie with your favorite sulfur cauldron. But tragedy strikes when you can’t upload it to your Instagram, because you don’t have Wi-Fi. 

Parks service officials are currently asking the question, “do national parks need Wi-Fi?

They are considering a $34 million plan to run fiber optic cable through Grand Teton National Park into Yellowstone.
