High Speed Wireless ISPs in Public Places

  • MobileStar - a Wireless Travel Portal in Hotels & Airports: MobileStar has started offering wireless LAN   speed connectivity to the Internet at selected hotels (Hilton, to start with), airports (e.g. Dallas), airline lounges (American Airlines Admirals Club). You can rent appropriate (Proxim) PC card for your notebook from the hotel or lounge, if you do not have one in your notebook. MobileStar is planning a monthly subscription fee of around $30, a price that includes 50 Mbytes of data transport, and a $1 session fee per localized session. In most cases, this would average out to between $40 and $50 a month. "A very interesting, innovative and useful service indeed for the busy professionals" - MobileInfo Editor

People with their own notebooks do not pay $9.95 charge. http://www.hotel-online.com/Neo/News/PressReleases1999_2nd/May99_GuesTech.html
