Perhaps you are staying in Derry-Londonderry on business, or for a conference in one of the venues across the city, or maybe your trip is solely for leisure purposes? Whatever the case, Wi-Fi access has become less of a luxury, more of a necessity these days.
Hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs throughout Derry, and in the towns and rural communities beyond, are stepping up to the mark to make sure that this facility is readily available, and most often, freely available to all its customers.
The internet has become part of many people’s lives; checking and sending emails, going on social media sites, finding out what the weather forecast is and keeping up with the news are part of everyday interactions with the world. Some people regularly watch TV shows and movies online, or play games that require internet access.
In a recent international survey, results showed that two-thirds of everyone questioned chose the provision of free Wi-Fi as the one thing they wished all hotels would provide. Just 11% were willing to pay for the privilege.
Most hotels and other types of visitor accommodation in and around Derry provide Wi-Fi but there is a whole range of services on offer.
Some hotels and even B&Bs provide Wi-Fi anywhere in the building, just as you would expect at home. Some only offer it in public areas, such as the foyer, bar or office centre. Some places offer wired ethernet in bedroom as well as Wi-Fi, which may offer a more reliable means of internet access, depending on the local signal strength.
In many cases, hotels have bowed to public pressure and Wi-Fi is indeed free. However, this is not always the case.
Some places offer free Wi-Fi only in public areas, some for a limited time: for instance, the first 30 minutes of use. Others use a loyalty membership scheme, offering free Wi-Fi if you’ve stayed in the hotel, or another in the same chain, for a certain number of nights.
Whatever your preference, all the Derry-Londonderry hotels, guesthouses and B&B accommodation listed on the Expedia website have Wi-Fi availability as one of the options that must be noted in the description of the amenities, so it is easy for every customer to check in advance what they might expect.
