Add a Wi-Fi break to your highway travels in British Columbia

Hitting the highway doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be out of touch, with the province of British Columbia rolling out a new highway initiative this week to start the process of making for wifi hot spots on the provinces highway system.

One Northwest location has been included in the Free Wi-Fi Hot Spot program to this point, with Glacier View rest area on Highway 16 north of Smithers now Wi-fi live, offering a chance for travellers to take a break, avoid using their phones while on the road and hopefully aid in the quest to reduce distracted driving situations.

The program which has expansion plans in mind for next year is a partnership with Telus and ICBC.

A full list of the current Wi-Fi Spots in BC, as well as more background on the program can be found here.

More notes related to travel along the Highway 16 corridor can be reviewed here.
