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

At what point does a person become a "bandwidth hog"? Unless there are specific limits stated by the provider (and I have been in campgrounds that do state, then monitor and enforce) how do you decide what is too much use, and how do you decide that your activity should take precedence over someone else's? Is my email more important than your download so you should stop so that I get my share? There is an easy way to avoid these issues. If you provide your own access you do not have to worry about a shared resource.

And your movie consumes the same bandwidth as my emails? RV Parks should state that you CANNOT download movies on their system. I feel that you would violate that directive anyway, because you obviously "don't play nice with others" wink.gif
