Marriott wifi pressure eases, hotel IT gets complicated
Better news for Marriott’s wifi credentials today as a study shows that its properties in Australia have the best wifi connections of any hotel group.
The news comes after Marriott was fined $600,000 by the Federal Communications Commission in the US for blocking personal wifi hotspots.
(Marriott insists it did nothing wrong but paid up anyhow)
Back in Australia, the "Hospitality Trends: Internet usage and wifi deployment" report from B2B telephony and internet provider Broadband Solutions says that Marriott is the highest ranking hotel group for bandwidth capacity. It provides an average bandwidth of 80 mbps, sharing top spot in the five-star charts with Hyatt.
