Wireless at Internet Librarian

This year I was doing double duty as a conference blogger and a MLS student. This means I needed reliable internet access. I was planning on paying for wireless, but as Sarah has pointed out – wireless was insanely priced at $50 a hour or $300 a day!!!! See the screenshot on Sarah’s blog. Instead I paid $10 a day for wired access in my room.

  1. I’ll tell you… it sure was nice to go to the Dartmouth Biomedical Library Conference the day after I got home where I turned on my computer and connected to their free wireless right away (though power outlets were in short supply). Yes, you can always blog in Notepad or whatever, but you can’t look up the things they’re talking about during the talk and get the URLs. It’s sad that you even had to expect to pay for wireless, and I am hopeful that will change in the future.

  3. I stayed at the Days Inn, only a 10 minute walk from the conference center, and it had free wifi, 24/7. I think sometimes the cheaper hotels and motels offer better service (at least in some ways–I got free wifi, but no bathtub).
