announced Air Force Global Strike Command on Monday. "With the understanding that this WiFi project is the Global Strike commander's number one quality-of-life priority, we worked relentlessly to deliver WiFi capability to the topside of the [missile alert facilities]," said Maj. Scott Papineau, the command’s communications plans and policies branch chief. The airmen who work in these remote facilities are deployed for three or four days at a time and have endured a lack of connectivity for their personal devices. Now that the WiFi connectivity is in place, the next phase “will be to make it an even better, 'Starbucks-like' experience by increasing the bandwidth and extending the access range," said A. G. Hatcher, AFGSC’s director of communications. (See also
