The Importance of Good Hotel Wi-Fi

Why Awesome Wi-Fi is a Game-Changer for Hotels!

Let's chat about something that can go unnoticed but can make or break a hotel experience – Wi-Fi!
In this era, where everyone's practically living online, having a rock-solid and speedy Wi-Fi connection is like having a secret weapon for hotels. We're not just talking about guests binge-watching their favourite shows (though that's crucial too), but about the whole shebang – from virtual meetings and staying connected with family to getting some work done in between sightseeing adventures.

Think about it – what's worse than a slow or wonky internet connection when you're supposed to be enjoying a well-deserved break? Bad Wi-Fi can turn a dream stay into a digital nightmare, and let's be real, nobody wants that.
The impact of top-notch Wi-Fi isn't just about keeping guests happy; it's about keeping businesses thriving. Happy guests are repeat customers and walking advertisements, spreading the word about your great hotel. On the flip side, a Wi-Fi fail can lead to negative reviews, and in the age of social media, that's like broadcasting your flaws to the world.

In the fierce competition of the hotel business, having stellar Wi-Fi can be a total game-changer. Business travellers, in particular, are on the lookout for places that understand the importance of a fast and reliable internet connection. So, investing in top-tier Wi-Fi doesn't just meet expectations; it sets your hotel apart as a tech-savvy, guest-focused haven.

In the digital age, it's not just about providing a place to stay; it's about creating an experience that guests will rave about, helping your business thrive in 2024 and beyond.

The BIG switch-off is coming…

Looking at the last few disruptive years in the economic landscape, a lot has happened since 2020. These last few years have certainly flown by. Fast forward, we are in the last quarter of the year, swiftly heading into 2023.

There is a huge change happening within our industry in the next few years that pave the way for a complete digital transformation in telecommunications.  Businesses will need support to ensure they are ready for how the changes will impact their operational telecommunications.   

Without responding to technological change, your business telecommunications may be interrupted.

What is the change? 

In simple terms, certain lines that may supply a single phone, broadband, a PDQ machine or a phone system for example will become redundant; these lines are specifically known as ISDN lines or PSTN (A standard phone line). All these lines will be switched off.

Modern digital behaviours have paved the way for introducing an improved digital and future-proofed network fit for the modern era. These will all be internet based.

When is the change happening?

Without an exact date, we are told that these lines will no longer be operational by December 2025. 

Who does it affect?

Both homes and businesses. 

How will phones look in the future?

It means that landline calls will be delivered over digital technology called Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which uses a broadband connection.
