The best I've seen is around 8 meg service. Usually it's more like 2 Meg's. It's enough for Netflix on the Roku sometimes. But not reliably.

Generally campground wifi is at or under 2Mb/s. I rarely even bother connecting to it.

I generally use my Verizon mobile hotspot tied to a leased unlimited plan. With it, I'll see speeds from 2-15Mb/s up and down.

Right now, in Anaheim, CA I'm seeing:


I almost always speedtest.

Of course, you can look at it any way you wish.
If theres a Business Owner who is Paying a Broadband Bill, then it is Real Money. And anyone misusing that is basically committing Theft.

If it were Electricity or Water running to that Business, and you were running a line and tapping into the Utility somewhere along the Roadside, it would be the same thing. Theft.

Now, on the other hand:
When you are paying for your Cellular Data Plan, and using the Signal Enhancer to improve your access to that service that YOU are paying for... More power to you!!

Creativepart and Ependydad,
Thanks for the bandwidth info! Trying to figure out what I need to do be able to do my job from our trailer. 2mb WIFI might be OK if I am the only one online, but it looks like wireless is the way to go. $1000 is pretty spendy to get good connectivity but since my job depends on it, I will have to look into that setup.

I fulltime RV and work full-time (a regular 9-5 coding job) from my camper. Having service is paramount.

You'll never be the only one online. But, generally- any numbers that I post are during the middle of the day. Here's my Verizon hotspot right now in Anaheim, CA:

Yeah. It's great. My Gen. 2 iPad would get around 34 Mbps with the same ISP plan and network hardware, but this new iPad Air 2 blows that away. You'll understand why I can't stand campground WiFi when I'm spoiled with this fast internet at home.

And I'm excited when I can get 5Mb/s.
