Internet on the go

For Internet on the go, people should use a mobile broadband card or mobile hotspot. If I owned a business (such as a coffee shop, restaraunt, or hotel), it would be up to the customer to provide their own Internet connection (such as tethering to a smartphone or mobile broadband card). I would gladly provide information to customers on how to tether on most popular smartphones provided their carrier allows smartphone tethering.

I use a mobile hotspot for my laptop on the go. My iPads have the Verizon radio in them as well.

Who is going to stay in your hotel if you don't offer hot spot access when every other hotel around you does?

I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.

Last time I stayed in a hotel (trip to Florida in Aug 2011), I used my Verizon mobile hotspot. I did not use the hotel's hotspot.

That tells us all again that IC still thinks that what is good enough for him is good enough for the rest of the world and that is EXACTLY how it should work.

The internet in a hotel does not count against the pitiful caps that most people have on their mobile services.

And if you travel little and don't have a hotspot. Hell - I don't even have a data plan - we don't have smart phones...

This idea is just as short sighted as the all encompassing - hot spots violate ISPs TOS...

How does that work when you travel out of the country? Or to multiple countries in one trip?

I was always happy to use the hotels hotspots as the alternatives would be such a pain.

With 2 GB monthly caps and $10 per GB overage that's hardly a solution. Not to mention those on non Share Everything pricing hotspot service is $20 a month extra.
