    Well said. It's almost IMHO unbelievable that a hotel charges such amounts for "fast" internet access every 24 hours.

    Any hotel that charges over 30 euros for so called "fast internet" is a scam in my opinion. Most of the times the free or complimentary wifi access is good enough to get your daily dose of being online.

    True luxury hotels IMHO should provide "free" internet to their guests. It's all part of a high standard offering.

    Exactly, it should be part of their service. Otherwise it will become an issue over which customers can struggle to come back to a hotel which is charging excessive costs for internet access. And if they do, there are always means to get around it, e.g. personal hotspots.

    I love it when you check in they tell you "thank you for being a loyal member and for your status you get free internet access". Sounds like they are doing you a favor. This is 2014! They even have free WiFi on buses now (latest was on a Finnair bus from HEL to Helsinki).

    Wifi at hotels should be free.
