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

This is a never-ending topic on this and other RV forums. IMHO there is no way there will be agreement between those who expect that an advertised amenity at a CG should be robust enough for any type of usage and those who assume people should approach a shared resource altruistically.

Personally, I tend to side with the group that feels that if you advertise an amenity then you do yourself more harm than good if it isn't done well. If you can't afford to pay for high bandwidth service or it isn't available in your rural area then don't put "free high speed internet" all over your website. As a full-timer I bring my own internet connection and I really don't care what you provide, but plenty of weekend RVers choose their CG's on the basis of ads. If you disappoint them, you will read about it in places like RVParkReviews.
