Hello.

Hope you can help.

I work for a hotel in England UK which does not have WIFI. We are situated in an area with generally poor internet speeds. Should low speeds prevent us getting WIFI for the hotel guests use?

I live in the next village a mile or so away and get download speeds of around 16 Mbps. I imagine speeds to be lower at work.

If possible, how would we go about installing WIFI in the hotel for guests use?

Considerations

Usage would be fairly low.
Budget is small.


Thank you.

If you are refering to wireless networking internally then that is just a function of setting up a hardware infrastructure to deliver the wireless signal through the hotel.generally this will require a main router to accept your connection from an isp and several wireless access points to provide services to you guests. The speed of internet access will be limited only by the max speed your isp can provide to the hotel. How much bandwidth you need depends on the load provided by your guests. Your best bet is to hire a consultant for a nominal fee and let them research what you need and if it is available in your area. Then if it is feasible have them price the installation and setup of the network. Keep in mind a minimal service contract is a good idea as well since things will inevitably go wrong and you will need someone to fix it in a prompt manner.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
