Alongside diminishing video-on-demand revenues and non-existing telephone income, hotel WIFI revenues are steeply shrinking, whereas the cost to provide Internet has gone up as a result of demand for more bandwidth and mounting infrastructure costs. The rise in cost and fall in revenues in offering complimentary Internet has become a much-debated issue in the hospitality industry, which leads to the question: is there life after free WIFI?
