Google Fights Marriott’s Plan to Block WiFi Hotspots

Google and Microsoft have joined a growing chorus of businesses that oppose Marriott’s attempt to block guests’ WiFi hotspots in their hotel rooms.

At Marriott, connection rates start at $14.95 per day. For $19.95, guests get “enhanced high speed Internet” which includes video chatting, downloading large files and streaming video.

In order to avoid pricey hotel WiFi charges, many guests opt to use their data allotment from their cell phone provider, connecting their laptops to the Internet via their smartphones.
