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

How do you know how much each person is using? Different password?

Every device that connects to a network has its own unique MAC (media access control address) which is how a wifi system knows, for example, if you are trying to connect multiple devices when you only have permission to connect a single device. It's my understanding that data usage by each MAC address on a network can be monitored even if all users use a shared password.
