A recent Forbes article highlighted the drawbacks of paying for Hotel and Conference Wi-Fi, which in 2014 truly seems to epitomize the term unnecessary evil.
Paying $24.95 for a suitable internet connection is a harsh reality for many travelers and conference goers who need the internet to stay connected for work. As the article highlights:
“The rise of personal wireless hotspots — both standalone units and as addons to smartphones — is starting to change the way that the public consumes WiFi on a large scale, and without the ability to charge visitors egregious fees, hotels and conference centers can’t pad their profits.”
While as consumers this comes as good news, it also means that hotels may begin increasing their Wi-Fi fees in order to make up for a loss in revenues. More than ever, renting a Tep pocket wifi can be an affordable alternative to expensive hotel Internet when traveling abroad.
