Rest Stop to Have free Wi-Fi
Prince George, B.C.- Next spring, when driving east on highway 16, you will want to know there is something new planned for the rest stop at Mt.Terry Fox, just east of Tete Jaune.
Visitors can take a bathroom break, maybe have a picnic, enjoy the view, and of course, check their smart phones and post a selfie on facebook or twitter, or instagram. There is no cell service a few clicks east of Mt. Robson until you hit Jasper.
The Mt. Terry Fox rest stop is one of five that will have free Wi-Fi available next spring, the others are:
* Britton Creek Hwy 5 – 67km south of Merritt
* Galena Bay Hwy 23 – 49km north of Nakusp
* Glacier View Hwy 16 – 7km north of Smithers
* Taylor River Hwy 4 – 37km west of Port Alberni
New Wi-Fi graphics ( like the one shown above right) will alert travellers to the presence of the service at rest stops.
