WiFi is here to stay until someone figures out something better, so naturally it has become an important part of a hotel’s services. Unfortunately many hotels still charge extra for it, and whopping fees at that.  Even if you’re willing to pay for it, you want to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Naturally, there’s an app for that. Gizmodo wrote about SpeedSpot and Hotel WiFi Test and tells us “the website will use your internet location to check your approximate location—you’ll have to grant it permission in your browser, first—and then you select your hotel from a list of suggestions. It’ll check your speed and figure the results into the rating.”
