From the March edition of the C&CC magazine which was delivered yesterday (page 14):
"Club Sites get more connected" - Wi-fi is now free at the majority of Club Sites thanks to a programme to expand and improve services throughout the network. Coverage and range has also been extended at 29 different Club Sites, meaning the average wi-fi speed at the majority of sites should be, under usual circumstances, perfect to shop online, search and book campsites, or check emails and social media... ...Free wi-fi now covers more than 85% of the Club's UK site network."
Sounds pretty good to me.
Yes, this is an excellent idea and perfectly doable.Hotels - like the Premier Inn - manage to provide a two tier wifi network... the slow speed for web, email etc if free but the high speed, high volume option is chargeable.
I think this is a good idea.
It would be good if the bandwidth per user could be restricted so those who hog the network to stream movies & TV don't limit the access to those who want to surf.
You could get yourself a VPN extension and then you would be more secure with your bankingI've never found site-wide wifi to be very useful. I preferred the ones you used to get where it was free but only within range of reception/bar. This meant only a limited number were using it so the speed was adequate. I would never use a public wifi for anything like banking though.
I guess it depends on what you are transmitting to get on to your online banking. If it is one time passwords or a locally entered password on your device which is encrypted I think you should be okay but I am no expert. The point of the VPN is to stop someone accessing your device i.e. it keeps it hidden.Not sure this would make any difference, the weak point is the shared site network which would still be used even with a VPN.
Why does that matter ?How many people were on the site?
