I think if you are still working and relying on the net to earn a living, expecting campground WiFi to be sufficient is "iffy." As I stated, I'm not a power user and in 90% of the campgrounds advertising WiFi in which I have stayed, the WiFi has been adequate for my needs. Occassionally I have had to use the personal hotspot on my phone if net access were necessary.
One time in West Virginia (it's almost Heaven), had neither WiFi or cell service. I did have to go to a McDonald's. I can't speak about Starbuck's as I rarely have a need for kerosene nowadays and my breakfast drink of choice is coffee so I have to go somewhere that serves coffee!

I've found a few times that when I couldn't lock in to the CG WIFI, going into the office and initializing the link there cleared the issue. I could then walk back to the trailer and all was well.

Happy Motoring
