Telenor rip-off

April 27, 2005

For the duration of the tour we’re staying at a conference hotel at Jevnaker. It’s excelent place to stay apart form one minor issue: They don’t provide free wireless network. For some strange reason the main Norwegian telecom Telenor has tricked a lot of hotels around Norway into providing their wireless internet solution. Unless you’re a certain kind of buisiness customer of Telenor they are charging you NOK 140 – (approx. 20 US$) for 4 hours access. You can extend to twelve hours for NOK 200 – (that’s about 30 US$). Completely ridicoluous. At home a months subscription costs me 300 -.

How can you possibly run a conference and business hotell in 2005 and not provide wireless for free?
