My biggest peeve is what I call Bandwidth HOGS.

Back home you get 55 gadzillion GB's of bandwidth that allows you to download movies from the various internet movie providers. While in your RV you make use of this wonderful service even though it denigrates WiFi service to those of use that just want to read emails and pay bills or book another RV park in our next city. I wish there was a way to prevent these bandwidth HOGS from consuming what little access we get in the RV parks.

I believe that many of the negative comments about poor WIFI in RV Parks recently have been as a result of campers chewing up bandwidth. I note that service always seems to decay around the time of dinner until 11 PM at night (Prime movie watching time).

I hope there is a special place in Hell for these Bandwidth HOGS mad.gif

There are technical ways that a campground WiFi system can be set up to provide an equal share of the available bandwidth to each connection. As new users are added, each slice of the pie shrinks accordingly. The fewer users, the more for each one, the more users, the less for each one. It's not a cheap process to set up though. I agree with Joez though, if a reliable Internet connection is important to you, the better answer is to provide your own when possible.
