    Our campground location is rural and remote, surrounded by mountains. Nothing gets in. We are using satellite as a last resort, with professionally installed Ubiquiti antennas and network equipment. However, data limits, latency and low bandwidth are killing us. Has anyone heard of a company called "Access Parks?" They claim to be able to bring not less than 25+ Mbps up and down to every connected device no matter where in the world you are, how secluded, how remote... Has anyone had any experience with them? On paper they sound fantastic, however they are kind of expensive and we have to be very sure before we agree to anything.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    From what I can tell they are using 5G (cellular) to backhaul Internet to the site. If there's good enough signal to the site or a place to put an antenna pointed to the tower it can be a good solution. There's two parts to good service to the site - good backhaul (Internet connection) and good Wi-Fi (distribution of that Internet to the camp sites). The words they say on their site seem good and if they have happy customers it's likely a good solution. Ask about SLAs (Service Level Agreements). An SLA is pretty simple - they guarantee X service speed (in Mbps) per camper or per site, etc. Their website says 25 Mbps to each camper which is plenty. I have 25 Mbps at my house and we watch streaming TV on multiple TVs without issue.

    If they have good reviews then I'd say they could have a good legit service.

    I have 2 parks, 2 WiFi systems 2 different providers in 2 different community’s. In my opinion setting up a WiFi network isn’t for amateurs. Get a professional. It’ll be less brain damage for you.

    As someone who just stepped in here for information... You are they guy whose coming off a bit on the unfriendly side. I don't know if you know what you are talking about, since you seem to be so intent on putting others down, but I haven't seen your answer to the original poster's request. yet.
