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

I set up wifi at the RV park, it is very difficult to have it at each camper because of the changing nature of the units. Our wifi is free, but has a download per day limit. If just a few stream it not only rules out many others from using the service, but also slows the stream. Bandwidth is limited and needs to be shared. It is not your home private internet. Even if you buy it from a wireless provider you buy a certain amount. So ours is free, and it is monitored and we do block people who abuse it.
