Carlton Hotel Auckland Installs 'Wi-Fi' wireless Internet Access

Carlton Hotel (Auckland) 19th November 2004 - Carlton Hotel Auckland, voted best Business Hotel by Asia Business magazine, announces the installation of Wi-Fi – wireless Internet access – in public areas of the hotel, and of wired broadband Internet access throughout the South accommodation wing. To ensure the highest standards and quality of service Carlton Auckland has teamed up with Intertouch, the leading Asia Pacific high-speed wired and wireless Internet service provider.

Wireless Internet access is available in the hotel's extensive lobby areas, Carlton Club, conference facilities, Business Centre meeting rooms and health club. Carlton Auckland has 455 guest rooms, and all now have internet access. With the roll out of this system business and leisure guests will now benefit from high-speed internet access to their corporate networks and e-mail accounts.

Brendon Bainbridge, Director of Sales and |Marketing said, 'Today's corporate travellers demand high-speed and wireless Internet capabilities, and if this hotel does not provide them they will take their business elsewhere'.

To get high-speed Wi-Fi access guests simply switch on their personal, wireless Internet-enabled laptop or PDA. If the user's laptop is not equipped with built-in WLAN connectivity, he or she can get a Wi-Fi card from the hotel's front desk, enabling them to be connected in seconds.

Responding to the ever-increasing use of the Internet as a crucial tool of communication is a further example of the hotel's constant striving to meet the changing demands of international guests, and Carlton Auckland is specially proud to offer such a market leading standard of high-speed Internet access and wireless technology.

'We believe offering professionals on the move a safe, secure and above all easy-to-use access to corporate and public Internet networks is an essential element in providing the 5-star service Carlton Hotel Auckland is famous for throughout Asia Pacific', says Mike Brown, General Manager.
