One interesting thing I've noticed that makes no sense to me. You can drive down a highway in the middle of nowhere and find countless low end hotels all offering "free wi-fi". But go to an upscale hotel and they charge you $10 per day for a connection. I recently stayed in Rome in a Mercure (owned by Accor who also owns Motel 6) and they charged 7 euros per hour for wi-fi.
Was that the Mercure by the Colosseum?
They charged $40/hour for wi-fi on the cruise ship. And that was a bargain compared to the $8/min ($480/hour) for a ship-to-shore telephone call.
