On the Road Again

    If you travel for business, even ocassionally and you take your laptop with you,here's a tip. Find a hotel that offers WIFI wireless internet access by Golden Tree Communications(GTC). After you get to your room call the front desk to get username and password,enter them into the default web page , and you are on.Regardless of your laptop configurations ,GTC Smart Server will configure itself so you do not have to adjust your own laptop's settings.Golden Tree completed Intel’s rigorous compatibility testing with Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology. The speed and the reliability is fantastic exceeding the speed in many hotels wired Ethernet offerings. On a recent trip at a Fairfield Inn,I had no problem connecting to our office using VPN. The GTC Smart Server even supports the protocol to allow you to participate in video conferencing.    

    Golden Tree installed systems in over 1200 hotels in US and Mexico. The top three hotel chains served include Mariott,Hilton and the Intercontinental Hotel Group.GTC was recently acquired by Guest-Trek Interactive and the new combined entity is now 2100 hotels.Some hotels charge for the service while others offer it as an amenity at no cost.
