We stayed at a Day’s Inn outside Brunswick for the weekend, and over and above the small ways it departed from its advertised characteristics (no newspaper, no eggs at the breakfast) or fulfilled them in awkward ways (no pets in non-smoking rooms), the advertised wifi has been a dreadful pain. It evidently uses a proxy server that itself slows down connections, then it seems to drop the signal at frequent intervals — whether inadvertently, through weak engineering, or deliberately, to prevent guests from engaging in long, heavy sessions (such as downloading a movie or playing Warcraft).
What a headache! Broadband connectivity is not so complicated nor so expensive that even an economy hotel should need to make it hard to use. Allons enfants de Blogaria! La jour d’internet à haut débit serait bientôt arrivée!
