2X. If it is there, it will be available to those that want it; all others can ignore it. In my case, having a US cell based data plan, the availability of WiFi in Canada's parks would make the difference between being able to post my travel updates, and waiting until I found another WiFi source.

How about cell towers disguised as trees?

Dave, there was one of those disguised cell towers right outside of Champoeg State Park. I went by the dang thing about four times before someone pointed it out. It was in the middle of a stand of trees, totally camoed!

Cell towers are hidden in Hawaii with a similar design.
