Speed test your hotel's Wi-Fi and see how it measures up. > 5 Mbps Go ahead and VPN into your work network and upload and download files while watching Netflix. 5 1-5 Mbps Should see an increase in speed and content choices. Video, music and voice streaming all work, but don't try them all at once on multiple devices. Mbps <1 Mbps Should be ok for getting email, general web surfing, Spotify and Skype. However, Netflix, YouTube and Skype Video will probably stutter or freeze. Best and Worst Hotel wireless hero and villain stories from around the world... Ritz-Carlton Montreal Top quality free Wi-Fi available in your room and anywhere on site at this recently renovated Ritz. What more could you want? Disney Beach Resort, Orlando, FLA Happiest hotel Wi-Fion earth. One click and you are on a free, fast reliable network that reaches not only from your room to the pool area, but can also be accessed inside the theme parks. North America Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas Wi-Fi is $19.95 a day, but the signal does not work resort wide. There is a free Wi-Fi option at the resort library where you can get a maximum of 15 minutes per day on one of the public computers. Um, no thanks. Casa Chameleon, Mal Pais, Costa Rica Not only do you have to hike from your casita the open air lobby to log on to the network but when you do, the Wi-Fi signal's availability can be as bumpy as the local roads. Andaz Amsterdam Strong, four bar, free Wi-Fi throughout, and they throw in a free healthy minibar. Hotel Indigo, London Tower Hill A free wireless oasis in a town that has long been ripping guests off for internet access. Europe Mandarin Oriental, Paris Free Wi-Fi in the rooms for a short period of time; beyond that it will cost you €15 per day. Tough to swallow when rooms start at €875 per night. Hilton Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast Paradise as long as you don't need Wi-Fi. Which will run you $29.95 AUD for 24 hours. Australian hotels have a long history of astronomical hotel Wi-Fi charges so look out mate. Australia The Observatory Sydney This hotel once overcharged for Wi-Fi at $35 AUD a day but now that it's flying a Langham Hotels flag, the Wi-Fi is wonderfully free. Novotel, Melbourne, St Kilda Wi-Fi is sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but always $10 USD for two hours or $27.95 USD per day with a megabyte cap before they start throttling your access.
