Yes, my favorite pinball show...can't wait!
Quoted from dannunz:
The hotel has made some inprovments on the wifi service I was told. This is the first I'm hearing of purple water.
Really, you don't read your own threads from last year? I wasn't the only one!
Quoted from ForceFlow:
Most hotels have congestion issues on WiFi networks. It's not really avoidable when there are hundreds of guests all trying to stream video or music simultaneously. Then on top of the bandwidth issue, another part of the problem is that most off-the-shelf wireless access points that you would find in an electronics store have trouble communicating when there are 20-30 users connected to it. So, when it comes down to it, you have bandwidth limitations, equipment limitations, and poor network design & management--all of which take a decent amount of money to correct in an environment with a lot of usage. There isn't really a "quick fix", unfortunately.
I'm sorry but that's a poor excuse. Every hotel I go to for a work conference has hundreds of people using wifi to do a variety of things and they can maintain a proper internet connection. There is NO excuse other than being cheap and not wanting to fix the issue!
