The War On Hotel Wi-Fi Escalates
It's a bloodbath on the front lines of the hotel Wi-Fi war, and our friends at Hotel Chatter are leading the charge.
At issue is the cost of wireless Internet at some hotels, often rising as high as $25 per person per day while the cost is only $350 to the hotel per month. Some think that the hotel industry is gouging customers – many of who already pay hundreds of dollars a night for their rooms. Others, well, think it's profitable.
Interviewed by Ayesha Durgahee on CNN's Business Traveler, our friend and managing editor of Hotel Chatter Julianna Shallcross takes the consumers' side suggesting that, "It just seems like pure profiteering on the hotel's part." Between her criticism and the works of CNN and Hotel Chatter, maybe the hotels will start listening.
