Even Business Travelers Aren't Yet Interested In Hotspots
from the eh,-not-so-interesting dept
For years, the justification for high prices on WiFi hotspots has been that “business travelers” with expense accounts and a desperate need to be online will have no problem paying for the access. While free hotspots have been clearly eating into that business model, there may be one other problem as well that explains why so many hotspot providers have folded up shop over the years: it turns out that very few business travelers are actually that interested in connecting over WiFi. They either see it as too expensive or too confusing, so they just don’t bother. I’m sure the idea of trying to get work done with music blaring and coffee spilling all around you doesn’t help either.
