As mentioned, that's the stake president's decision. While most church buildings have good Internet, some are on slow DSL and even 4G. Some may even be metered (the church pays by the GB). In those situations, it wouldn't be surprising if the leaders choose to restrict who can use it. Rich media has a big impact on the network - far more than just updating calendars and such. So that may well have played a part in their decision.

The WiFi is provided for "church use". Not necessarily "for use while at church". Some leaders may not view that as church use - particularly given the impact it would have on the network. And as pointed out, I wouldn't rely on rich media working at church. The typical chapel has the same internet connection found in a home - now imagine sharing that with 150 of your closest friends and that's what Church internet is like. I'd also note that during a stake conference, you may find WiFi turned off completely - to assure that any webcast (sending or receiving) will not encounter the dreaded "buffering" message.

There's a reason there's locks on some doors inside
the chapel. Some will use their agency to the detriment of others.
