With my extensive travel this year, I’ve found myself buying a lot of wifi access at hotels and airports…
- $9.95 for an hour’s in-flight access with Connexion.
- $5.95/day at the Serrano with Citi-Net.
- €10/day with Orange in Paris.
The cost of each service is excessive, but less irritating than having to signup for a new service at each location and zero tech support from the hotel. Finally, in Brussels last week, at the Bedford Hotel, I balked at the ridiculous €20/hour charge (see screenshot).
When I check into a hotel, I don’t register for and pay electricity, TV and gas providers, so why do I need to join a broadband provider
UPDATE: The Good Hotel Guide has criticised the cost of wifi in UK hotels.
