Crap Wifi in hotels makes you appreciate text media and ignore images and avoid websites that take long to load. If you can’t display shit after three seconds I guess I’m not the target audience after all.

Another problem with crap Wifi is big web sites. Big sites can also be big because they're actually applications dealing with data, so now you need to download your data, and the UI. Looking at Mastodon, Diaspora and web mail... Gaaah!

(And there are number of rural places in the US that are still stuck with dialup)
