“Let’s wander where the WiFi is weak”

"Let’s wander where the WiFi is weak” --that is, out of touch from our daily world—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “‘Let’s wander where the wifi is weak’ lmao lamest shit I’ve ever heard how about not bringing technology into this” was posted on Twitter by Lily Fuchs on April 21, 2015. “Let’s wander where the wifi is weak” was posted on Twitter by Caroline Cepeda on May 4, 2015.

Authorship is uncertain, but it probably was at least popularized by an image.


Wikipedia: Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi or WiFi (/ˈwaɪfaɪ/) is a technology for wireless local area networking with devices based on the IEEE 802.11 standards. Wi-Fi is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance, which restricts the use of the term Wi-Fi Certified to products that successfully complete interoperability certification testing.

Devices that can use Wi-Fi technology include personal computers, video-game consoles, phones and tablets, digital cameras, smart TVs, digital audio players and modern printers. Wi-Fi compatible devices can connect to the Internet via a WLAN and a wireless access point. Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (66 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors. Hotspot coverage can be as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves, or as large as many square kilometres achieved by using multiple overlapping access points.
