I couldn't tell you how it compares to what is available at most campgrounds because we never use their internet.
In most CGs I use my Version LTE (4G) service too.
I find most park have really slow WiFi, not worth logging on to.
LTE is usually sufficient for reading the forums, a little slow loading the pages but I can live with it. I'm usually on business when I'm in the coach so reliable high speed is a blessing when downloading large files and documents (several mb files sizes). When LTE times out I just wait until I'm at the office the next morning. My time in Ruskin with 100mb/s spoiled me.
On average Verizon download speeds are 36 mbps, higher in bigger cities. So roughly a 3rd of what 100mbps offers. If you achieve the average of 36mbps you would be able to stream video fairly easy.
At my current CG with 4G I'm seeing download speeds of 15mbps, with their WiFi the test times out before reporting speed, now thats just sad. It's like a history lesson when we used a 14.4k modem to connect.
