Marriott hotels wants to use Wi-Fi / cell phone jammers @marriott #TravelBrilliantly @MarriottIntl

Mariott

Google and Microsoft Oppose Hotels’ Effort to Block Personal Wi-Fi @ WSJ. “Marriott is re-imagining the future of travel.”

Marriott has said it had an obligation to protect guests from “rogue wireless hotspots” that could lead to hacking.

Google also said if hotels want to engage in “secret jamming” of people’s Wi-Fi devices at hotel properties, this “merely confirms that they recognize the importance their guests attach to having unrestricted access to Wi-Fi.”

Read more & here are the letters from Microsoft and Google to the FCC asking the FCC not to allow Marriott to block Wi-Fi. Pretty intense when both Google and Microsoft team up & completely agree on something.

  1. This is a very bad idea! Recently here in Nashville The Opryland Hotel was sited by the FCC for using said jammers.
