Ruby Falls Installs WiFi Inside Lookout Mountain

Chattanooga (WDEF) – Ruby Falls announces the first ever Wi-Fi connection inside Lookout Mountain.

That’s 1,120 feet down, making it the deepest commercial cave with internet access.

Ruby Falls is working with EPB and InfoSystems for this unique installation process for Chattanooga.

“In today’s world communication is vital,” said Hugh Morrow, president of Ruby Falls.

“So it has been great partnering with supporters like InfoSystems, HP and EPB to provide our guests the technology for making their visit even more enriching without detracting from our unique natural attraction. No one would have thought more than 85 years ago that we could connect with the world from over 1,100 feet deep within Lookout Mountain.”

So soon you will be able to post your underground selfies directly from the cave.

The Wi-Fi also improves communications in the cavern for staff and security.

“This is certainly one of our more unique installations,” said InfoSystems Solutions Specialist Nate Hood. “Working together, InfoSystems and Ruby Falls have achieved a historic moment for the cave – as far as we know, connecting the depths of a tourist cave to the Internet has never been done.”

The project is still in phase one.
