Christine600 I am currently in France. 2/2 campsites want 1/hour for wifi. Now on a beautiful aire in Thierry close to a McDonalds and can go online thanks to the wifi amplifier antenna.

MrWez Having just got back from France, all of the sites offered WiFi (even though one claimed that it didn't), we had to pay at one of the sites and most of the sites only had WiFi in a very small area (usually near reception or the bar - which was a shame in the case of the latter obviously). Only one site had free WiFi throughout the site. We stayed at 5 sites in total.

I think free WiFi with decent connection speeds available throughout the site should be the norm and not the exception.

pomme1 I agree with Tude. There's a world of difference between the connection speeds on CC sites and most sites offering 'free' wi-fi.

I think the CC actually charge 25 for a year's unlimited access. Personally, I think that's bl**dy good value for money.

We've just come back from an extended tour of Scotland, and most sites charging for wi-fi were asking 4 for 24hrs through 'Highland Wi-fi'. The very few free ones we found had dire connectivity unless you were sitting under the node.

Unfortunately, most CC sites north of Inverness don't have a connection of any sort at the moment!

Both clubs here do wifi 20 for 1yr hardly think that's a rip off and
They are fast enough to watch YouTube if that's what you want to do

wp1234 Also just back from France . Most municipals visited had free wifi although speeds were not always blisteringly fast.

Ludlow site on the way back 5 for 24 hrs , great welcome back to rip off UK

CC and C&CC take note

cheshiregordon we use the ACSI book to find the sites with free Wifi and as a rule won't stay at those that charge for it. There is usually a choice of sites in any area. Although not fast the free wifi is usually sufficient to allow video skype to the grand-children.
In the UK I use BT hotspots refusing to pay the high club prices for Wifi

mcpezza Hi.

Just returned from a couple of weeks in France, stayed on six sites only one of which charged, a Yelloh site on the south coast.

Connection speed is usually slow, as I find with most open networks, due to the volume of users generally. The motorhome wifi router works great on the sites that charge, once logged in we use four devices for one payment.

HurricaneSmith Almost every French Tourist Office offers free wi-fi, but don't expect a blisteringly fast connection.

They also seem to have regional variations for server and connection methods.

safariboy In Spain last winter WIFI was often free but they were clearly introducing charges asap. As against that they were installing better systems more comparable with the standard on CC and CCC sites.
