It will be NOFI when the sites are busy with everyone trying to get on it. A good data package that supports tethering is the way to go.

I think it was only £25 per annum before that Janine.

It was so crap though that we didn’t use it.

It's free. There was a members survey last year and I suggested they go the same way the continental sites are going. So perhaps they do listen to members, sometimes.

Free, not free, depends on how you look at it. The problem is the quality. Same on the trains - why bother even saying it is available when it is worse than useless - sometimes even for email.

IF they can get fibre to the site (big if) then the technology exists to give a quality wifi service to all. To watch streamed Netflix can be done with as little as 4Mb/s - even a service at 8Mb/s would really be quite acceptable.

Blimey- what are you lot like? I’ll keep it to myself next time!
Must admit I'm surprised at the reaction to your useful post!

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. (y)

I got my email last night telling me about it but not read until now

Most site WiFi, whether free or not, tends to be of lacklustre quality, with variable bandwidth issues. I personally have gone the MiFi route, piggy backing onto my Cell Phone. I can run up to 10 devices on it (allegedly) But it does cope with 2 I-Pads and a laptop simultaneously for surfing. never tried streaming, but I am told that it is possible on a 4G signal?.

I noted at NEC today that they have decided (from 19Mar, I think) to provide WiFi for free "on most sites".
I cannot imagine anyone being able to stream data on such services. i'd expect it to break-up. I think the problems with low bandwidth come from too many requests being made simultaneously.

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.

Has anyone else noticed that when you "sign up" for many of the "free" WiFi access options, you finish up with an inbox full of cr*p.?. ( the only "solution" I have found is to have a separate E-Mail address for this purpose?) But that wont work with the C&CC or CC I suspect.
