Over £2.2M invested in market-leading Wi-Fi upgrade
We know how important a good internet connection is to you when
organising a conference, meeting or event.
In 2016, we invested over £2.2 million in upgrading Wi-Fi access
and bandwidth across our all hotels, giving our customers a
faster, more reliable connection.
As a result of the upgrade works:
- Up to 500 simultaneous connections are available at each
internet access point
- Each hotel's free Wi-Fi offering has increased from a shared
8Mbps to 90Mbps
- Dedicated bandwidth capacity for conferences and events has
increased from 90Mbps to up to 900Mbps
The improved service also ensures a fair-share approach to Wi-Fi
access per device, ensuring each phone, laptop or tablet has an
equal share of the Wi-Fi available. Hotel guests frequently have
two or three connected devices each, which is why bandwidth
management has been implemented.
How can dedicated bandwidth benefit my event?
As you don't have to share your internet connection with anyone
else, your download speeds will not be affected by other users.
The super-fast connection makes high definition video
conferencing a breeze. All presentation material can be hosted
online with no risk of losing or slowing your connection and your
delegates can quickly and simply download product specs, sales
documents and much more at the touch of a button.
This exciting investment brings great opportunities for your
meeting or event, so contact us today to find out how you can
bolt-on extra bandwidth for your conference.
Fair usage policy
Our fantastic free and easy access Wi-Fi service, for
all guests and visitors, was launched in July 2011, with a
view to providing the best possible service to our wide range of
The last 18 months have seen an explosion of internet-enabled
devices, as well as the rapid growth of applications and content
that these devices can run. This has lead to occasions, during peak
usage times, whereby lower-bandwidth consumers (e.g. web browsing
or emailing) have been adversely affected by higher-bandwidth users
(e.g. video streaming).
In view of this, QHotels have now installed a Netequalizer server
to manage guest bandwidth. In essence, this means the server
constantly monitors guest bandwidth usage at each hotel and if
usage rises above 85% of the available capacity, the server will
penalise high-bandwidth users.
Utilising this type of technology helps us to ensure each user
receives a fair allocation of the available bandwidth and offer the
best possible service to our customers.
