RE: WiFi booster

What you're actually looking for is a router/repeater that is capable of what is called WiFi as WAN which means that it can receive WiFi from a source, such as the RV park, and rebroadcast it inside your RV. Regular home routers don't usually have this function because you're unlikely to "drive" your house to where there's a WiFi to connect to! There are a number of companies that offer routers with WiFi as WAN capability. You can read about this topic on the Mobile Internet Resource Center website. MIRC is run by good people who aren't affiliated with a specific manufacturer so you get good unbiased information. Some portion of the site is free; some requires a subscription.

RE: Upgrade to 5G without increases in data allowances?

Putting aside the confusion in this thread between 2GHz and 5GHz wifi and 4G and 5G cellular, it's worth noting that not all 5G is created equal and much of the recent hoopla about 5G won't provide the performance improvement that many people are expecting. All three carriers are now using DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing) to insert a form of 5G onto their existing 4G networks. This saves enormous costs (for them) and speeds up the process of being able to claim that they have 5G nearly everywhere. However, the drawback to using frequencies in the 600-800MHz band for 5G is that the result is a sort of "5G Lite" with speeds that are somewhat better than what most of us get with 4G but not blazingly fast! "Real 5G" requires millimeter wave technology which might never be seen anywhere outside major urban centers. Over time there will be a build-out of mid-band 5G in the 2.5GHz region which will produce an "in between" form of 5G.
