> Wi-Fi Ripoffs, Free Modem Connections Being Abandoned
post Mar 21 2004, 08:53 AM
Post #1


We are noticing, more and more, that some greedy campground owners are taking out the customary free modem connection and insisting that you use a Wi-Fi system at anywhere from $10 to $15 weekly, or $3.00 to $4.00 daily. It doesn't matter to us because we have a MotoSat system that allows us to connect to the internet anywhere, but this appears to be another example of where greedy campground owners are reducing services and increasing prices. For those who depend on internet connections, I would suggest you inquire about modem accomodations when you make a reservation and, whenever possible. refuse to stay at a park that does not continue to offer free modem connections even if it offers Wi-Fi. Campground rates at many locations are already approaching motel rates and this industry is eventually going to kill the goose! sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif
