Hotel Internet problems

Hotel Internet problems My son and I are still in Wales, Swansea for one more night and having internet problems. The signal so weak and my laptop keeps drop the Wi-Fi. I’ve been to the desk to see if they could help but they said they couldn’t do anything. I think the problem could be down to the weather and the sea mist which we had the last few hours. Hopefully, the Wi-Fi signal improves. It’s been good here in Swansea, impressed with the university and it’s been good to catch up with my son who lives with my ex-wife. How’s you Saturday been or going?

The internet of those places seems like they are programmed to be bad.

I think you are right there, never really have good internet service in a hotel.

I spent the afternoon with my youngest daughter. We covered three of her throw cushions to match her new sofa. Then I made use of her family room floor to sandwich a quilt. I'll be going back to finish pinning it tomorrow or Monday.

I always have problems in the Italian hotels, they have very poor Internet service. Saturday has rained all the day, very cold and windy. We stayed at home.

@kevin1877uk May be except in the United States, here in Europe it is not yet considered a service for the clients.

@LadyDuck The internet in the US was worse, I would have thought the US was way ahead of everyone else, I was so wrong on many things.

This is all too common a problem Kevin. I have been to many hotels where the calibre of wi-fi was atrocious.

Same here Barry, I don't think I've ever really had good WI-FI in a hotel, ok maybe moment. I think it could do with the page sizes it needs to load and the strength of the signal

@Asylum Glad that you have, it's awesome when you do. I was in Dublin once, when I checked it the WI_FI was really good, fast, went out for 4 or 5 hours came back and pages won't even open :(

We celebrated my son's birthday last night with a cookout and a big bonfire in the back yard of the house. He will be turning 14 this coming Wednesday. Since his birthday is in the middle of the week, he will be fortunate that we will celebrate it two weekends in a row (to accommodate all our family members who will be coming in from out of town).

We had trouble throughout Europe with wi-fi and internet. Despite what parks and so on promised, it was rarely satisfactory.

Today before I book a hotel, I will see whether the internet is available. Today it seems the internet has played a main role for our lives I can understand how frustrating it is that the Wifi doesn't work well in a hotel. I don't care about TV but I care about the internet
