Wow-free Internet is the winner! Good news and I hope someone will be listening to that. I know that it's a money maker for hotels, but really, in this age of wireless and 3G networks and smart phones, oner small comp can't be that bad. Have you stayed at any of the Marriotts where there are two tiers for Internet? Seems the tiers are about the same in terms of speed (not that fast).
At home I can routinely expect 16 m.b. download speeds but on the road it is painfully slow and expensive--alas.
Perhaps a follow up question might be: "Would you like to see free Internet but would you be willing to pay for faster Internet? (name your speed here)
