Yes!Â All you have to do is ask.Â I think you’ll find that RVers with 2-way Internet Satellite dishes are a pretty friendly bunch.Â Like most RVers in general!Â We have the Satellite Dish, ours is a Datastorm, because we *must* have Internet at all times!Â We love the Internet and we love to talk about it and share it with our neighbors.Â We find that most dish-owners are the same.Â So, you might want to look for RVs that look like the photos below and park close by!
This next photo was taken at a Datastorm Rally.Â There were about 60 2-way Internet satellite dishes deployed here!Â No problem getting online here!
We don’t leave it wide open however.Â The WiFi network that we have set up with our satellite Internet connection has WEP encryption on and you need to know the key in order to use it.Â As I said, we’re a friendly sort and we want to talk to you about using the Internet.Â We’re happy to share, but we want to know who is using it.
We have a little sign in our window that says, “Want Internet, Ask Us”.Â And the name or ‘SSID’ of our Wireless Network is “Want Internet – Ask Us”.Â We are probably a little more accessible than some others because we also sell the Datastorms.Â But, an informal survey of other dish-owners confirm that they’re happy to share – all ya gotta do is ask.
Please be prepared for a ‘No’ answer though.Â There are some people who are very dependent on their Internet connection and need every *bit* of bandwidth they can get.Â Â TheÂ systems are expensive, and the monthly service ain’t cheap either ($60 – 200.)Â Dish-owners are certainly under no obligation to share, but you’ll find that most of them *want* to.Â
