Small areas are not where "it's at" in Tourism. Think more along the lines of "Everywhere, Free and Fast"

Oddly, Tourists are rarely comforted by tales of how much worse their lot could have been had the Supplier been even less bothered. The OP is on the right track, full WiFi on site is the way to go. Personally, I'd run a radial cable network and a few poles on the odd static, it's simple, cheap and hard to "knock over".

The overall connection speed isn't as critical as you might think - trust me

Oh, I'm with you there as a potential tourist... however in my view sleeping in a tin shed is not where it is at in terms of tourism either!

If there is budget for everywhere, free and fast then clearly that is the way to go. But I am assuming that the it infrastructure budget on a caravan site might be a bit less than a luxury spa resort, and the cost of coverage and connection might be higher than an urban boutique hotel.

Does he have any mates who offer a similar install? I would use donegaldan, it's just that only about 15% of my students are spotty

I'll assume that you haven't taken a shine to Glamping either then?
