Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 3 June 2013

Meritus Hotels & Resorts has decided to operate a tiered-access internet system at its properties in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China.

The service offers guests a certain amount of bandwidth to exchange data across virtual private networks and social media channels, as well as download and upload files, including rich media formats.

However, for heavy bandwidth users looking to stream high-definition videos, download movies, or simply upload or download other files of a large size, the company has made a premium bandwidth package available for which a guest has to pay.

Guests carrying multiple devices can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access for up to three devices.

"Free and efficient Wi-Fi connectivity has become an increasingly important benchmark for hotel end users," said Maria Taylor, Meritus Hotels & Resorts Regional Vice President, Revenue. "By offering this value-add and adopting it as a brand standard, we ensure that we are meeting the ever evolving needs of our guests and remaining at the forefront of a highly competitive industry."

Many leading hotel companies such as Carlson, Wyndham, Best Western, Shangri-La and others, today offer unlimited internet access, for unlimited devices.
