Over the past several years, the market for hotel broadband has grown and changed considerably. From the initial days with very few hotels deployed and very few travelers using the service, hotel broadband is now widely available and widely used - says Amy Cravens, In-Stat analyst. Travelers have grown to expect broadband in the guestroom - they have used the service, become aware of which properties have broadband access and which do not, and have made booking decisions based on broadband availability. At the beginning of 2006, More than 22,000 hotels and resorts around the world provide public Wi-Fi access – more than any other industry segment. According to JiWire, the leading provider of information and services to help people connect to the Internet without wires. In-Stat, a leading provider of actionable research, predicts that the ranks of broadband-enabled hotels will grow from 14,300 properties worldwide in 2004 to nearly 54,000 properties in 2009. The increase in the number of wireless Internet users around the world, created the need for many people to be able to rely on Wi-Fi connections when they are traveling away from their office. The advantage to using Wi-Fi is that it gives business and leisure travelers more mobility and flexibility. Guests can work from the hotel lobby, meeting rooms or from their own room using a Wi-Fi "hot spot," which are areas that allow high-speed wireless Internet access. A new Wi-Fi Alliance survey shows that 70 percent of current and prospective Wi-Fi users report they are more likely to take their notebook computers when traveling on vacation thanks to the widespread availability of wireless networking hotspots in airports, hotels, parks, and restaurants. Wi-Fi provides a quick and simple means for travelers to change flight and hotel reservations, book rental cars and conduct last-minute trip planning activities. Travelers also find Wi-Fi helps them locate restaurants, gather information on local events and find popular as well as "off-the-beaten-path" attractions.
