80 new hotel properties get Wi-Fi service.

Wayport has signed a number of hotel chains in Northern Europe to use its Wi-Fi services. They include First Hotels, Restel Hotels (which manages Cumulus, Holiday Inn, Ramada and Rantasipi Hotels in Finland), Norlandia Hotels & Resorts and Zleep hotels. This covers 80 hotel properties.

Guests can get access from a public PC Wayport that sets up, or via high-speed access found in public areas and guest rooms.

In February, Wayport bought ResortWiFi, a provider of services at hotels including Fairfield Resorts International, Monarch Grand Vacations and others found in 32 countries.

Recent deployments for Wayport in the United States include the 201-room Visalia Marriott in Visalia, California. The hotel has Wi-Fi service in all rooms, common areas, and the 4,800 square foot of meeting space.
