>200 Mbps download speed . . . yesterday afternoon it was only hovering around 100 Mbps.

Anyone else seeing speeds like these?

Not checking, doesn't really matter to me. Nice link to your blog again though.

The campground must have FIOS installed and few people accessing it at the time you ran your test.

I still don't understand the need for such speeds. I'm throttled at the moment and so dl is 2.0 mbps and up load is 1.4. I can watch netflix with no buffering.

I can get around 10mbps using my phone's hotspot most anywhere, which is definitely faster than nearly all campground's wifi. Be careful of your data though when using a phone for this, a 1 hour show streaming on netflix or other service burns about 1GB per hour on SD quality viewing.

If they are sharing it with a 100 campers that are on the network, they are all getting about the same 2.0 mbps you are. If it happens to be 200 people streaming youtube or netflix, then they are getting 1 mbps which isn't a great stream speed.

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.

Hi,

I do understand the sharing comment. However, when not throttled I'm getting 50 Mbps. I doubt I'm the only person connecting to the cell tower for data.

I believe the OP was referring to campground provided WiFi speeds, not cellular speeds he was getting while at a campground.

Yes, he is referring to wifi speeds. However I still do not understand the requirement for such speeds.

Not quite as fast as the OP, but this is LTE not WiFi
