Internet Speed Test Tool Coming

In the next few days you'll see a new option on the upper red RV LIFE bar to take a speed test. If you are camping at a park the info will be used to contribute to collective speed test data that we display at Campground Reviews on each park page. (RV LIFE Campground Reviews is our sister site). Your personal information will not be shared - only the carrier info associated with the internet connection and the test speed. If you are not at a park, you can still take a speed test anytime you like. The info will be only informational for you but it's still fun. Many RVers use Campground Reviews (and RV Life Trip Wizard) when planning trips, and having good connectivity at a park is a prime concern for many when choosing a park.

To enable this tool, we've set up a prompt to allow location services on your device. You can dismiss it if you're not interested but if you would like to take a speed test and you'll need to "allow location detection" The location info is not used for any other purpose.

Speed test info reported by real RVers is the most reliable info about what to expect for connectivity at a park and so we're excited at the possibilities for everyone who RVs. :flowers:

I got the message last night so it is working. It only appears the first time I logged on. I accessed it later on my iphone and the first time only it asked for the speed test.

Easy Peasy and the data will help those researching the wifi of a destination.

I think this is a great idea and will gladly participate. Knowing in advance what carriers have adequate coverage will assist me and likely many others who need to stay connected for work while we are away....

Tried speed test twice in last few days while on site at Collier-Seminole SP near Naples, FL. Both times received message saying a campground couldn't be located in the area, but aked me if I wanted to take the test anyway.

I didn't take the test. We have Verizon and always get excellent reception.
