Will you pay for Wi-Fi?

My weekly article for the RV.net blog this week asked the question, 'Will you pay for Wi-Fi?" It's getting a lot of responses and makes for some interesting reading. I thought I'd tell you about it in case you'd like to add your 2 cents! I wonder what it was like being around when radio was first invented. Did they try to charge for that? I'll bet they wanted to, but there was simply no way to extract a fee for something that traveled thru the air. Well, now there is. Many people think Wi-Fi should be included as a free amenity at RV parks ... like the pool. Others think it's more fair to charge for useage ... like the laundry machines. Since we worked in the Wi-Fi industry for a while, we know the effort and expense that goes into a good Wi-Fi system. There's got to be money in it *somewhere*! In any case, it's interesting watching a new-born industry develop.
