If you stay inside the park you can forget streaming anything. Outside the park in West Yellowstone at peak times streaming won’t be much good either. Make the 12 year old get off the electronics and enjoy what’s there to see.


Why does everyone have to be a critic? You don’t know my parenting style to make such a statement. Your comment about streaming didn’t need that last sentence tacked on.

I'm a father of a child with Autism. The phone and Youtube are his lifeline and his way he copes with the outside world. We can do NPs but with some acomodations.


There are plenty of Chuck's out there. Usually it's a disapproving look. Sometimes they're bold enough to open their mouth.

My son's going to have to learn that this world is still full of folks who talk first, think later.

Making a two month road trip west, week long stays in Black Hills, YNP, Teton, Glacier, and other “remote” areas.

We’re a Verizon family. 12 year old kid that will want to do typical streaming.

Have been looking at Weboost offerings. I’m handy and can do a hardwired install on 5th wheel.

I hooked up a Netgear MIMO antenna to our mifi, and it gave a little boost out here pn the populated east coast, but I’m not sure that’s robust enough for the wide open spaces out west.

You will be just fine with Verizon. There will be some dead spots between here in the Black Hills and Yellowstone and Glacier just like there are in other areas.

Just because we don't have the population doesn't mean we can't stream. Actually it is usually better because we don't have as many people streaming per tower.

I went with the RV65....I do use an omni antenna connected to it when traveling then set up the directional on a mount when stationary! Only had it this last trip and happy with it so far.

FWIW,

Almost every year for the last 20+ years I've been to yosemite.
Verizon has a tower somewhere in or pointing into the park and has coverage in the campgrounds.

Sprint, text messages and voice work.
ATT & Tmobile sort of have coverage in certain locations in the valley.

I found all this out because my family that went all had different providers.

18 months ago, when I went the last time, I actually was working on my verizon Jetpack and did some testing - I was able to stream and such.

I don't know if the other vendors (e.g. Visible - a verizon subsidiary) or other MVNO's will workin the valley.
