Re: Internet on the go

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.

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.
