Hotel WiFi Test launches monitoring and certification program

Hotel WiFi Test launches its monitoring and certification program. The new monitoring and certification program makes it easy for hotels with good WiFi to monetize their investments in the Wi-Fi infrastructure while, helping other hotels to improve Wi-Fi quality. Simultaneously, travelers can obtain extremely detailed and reliable information about Wi-Fi quality of hotels participating in the program.

This program is an addition to the existing testing methodology based on crowdsourcing. This methodology provides good estimates for Wi-Fi quality, especially if a hotel has been tested many times by several different guests. However, since Wi-Fi quality varies all the time and depends on many factors, to give travelers absolute confidence, the WiFi network must be constantly monitored.

As a part of the program, Hotel WiFi Test provides a monitoring device for a hotel. The device is connected to the hotel's Wi-Fi network in the same way guests do. The device monitors the quality of Wi-Fi 24/7 and sends the data to Hotel WiFi Test's servers.
This is a risk-free proposition for hotels. A hotel can choose not to publish the results, so allowing it time to improve its Wi-Fi quality to meet the certification standards. Also a monthly subscription can be terminated at any time - there is no long-term contract.
For hotels that already have good Wi-Fi quality, it can be an opportunity to get recognized. The monitoring and certification program makes it easy to prove the WiFi quality and reveal this information to the public.

Some hotels invest heavily in providing Wi-Fi facilities, but Wi-Fi quality can still be lacking. The monitoring solution provides clear requirements for working with Wi-Fi infrastructure providers. Also once the setup is complete, Wi-Fi quality reports help to keep those responsible for Wi-Fi maintenance accountable.
