A little more than two weeks after Hurricane Ian struck Florida with devastating force, thankfully most RV parks and campgrounds are open once again and campers are coming back.
It has been wonderful to witness the incredible outpouring of support that has been flowing in from park owners and associations around the country.
That being said, for too many RV parks and campgrounds in Florida the damage to park and local infrastructure means they remain closed or with limited services due to the damages Ian caused.
Electricity has been restored in most areas, but damages to the in-park infrastructure that supports your internet, Wi-Fi and TV service for your campers has made providing those services difficult or even impossible for some parks.
We have had customers throughout Florida and South Carolina calling us to report that wind and flooding has damaged their cable plant, wiring, and pedestals that carry these critical services to your campers.
If your park was damaged and you need financial help, these are a few of the resources available to you.

We May Have a More Cost and Time Effective Solution
Flood and wind damage that has damaged the pedestals and cable plant in your park can require you to dig up all the cabling and replace or repair it from the headend all the way to the pedestals at each campsite.
If your park infrastructure was damaged and you lost TV, internet, or wi-fi we may have a solution for your Wi-Fi and TV that requires no re-cabling of your park or pedestals and can get you up and running again quickly.
Stream TV over Wi-Fi
You can save considerable money and time on getting your services up and running because in most cases you are able to avoid cabling and construction costs and all the time it takes to do them.
Your park may qualify for:
- $0 Equipment Costs for New TV systems
- Wi-Fi with 100% Park Coverage
- True Broadband Speeds* for each camper
The FCC defines broadband as 25 mbps download speed – https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/broadband-speed-guide
