Hotels Still Charging for Internet But Now There’s No Need to Pay

About a year ago, I was on vacation and annoyed at how much hotels charge for Internet. So I blogged about it. I’m on vacation yet again but this time am blogging about how I’m not annoyed. The difference?

I’m blogging from my G1 phone (just installed a sweet WordPress blogging app). In fact, I’ve got everything I need on this baby and won’t be giving any hotels $10 per day for awhile.

Paying for Internet on my phone just paid off. One month of Internet on the phone is the same cost as 2-3 days of hotel Internet. And phone Internet gives me some cool flexibility whereas hotel Internet only gives me what I’m used to getting at a tenth the cost.

Kudos to T-Mobile, and down with overpriced hotel Internet!

    I agree that you can get by quite well with a G1. The same is probably true with an iPhone as well — although I think having a real keyboard is pretty important for extended typing. I am looking into solutions for tethering, or sharing my G1's Internet connection with my laptop. Looks like they have some pretty sweet solutions — especially if you have rooted your phone. http://androidcommunity.com/tag/tether/

    Yeah, I need to look into that too. I thought Google / T-Mobile were trying to shut down tethering?
