Broadband-Enabled Hotels to More Than Triple by 2009, says Instat. From 14,300 properties in 2004 to nearly 54,000 properties in 2009. Don’t get too impressed by the numbers – in %-terms, broadband will have only penetrated 3.4 percent in 2004, growing to 11.4 percent in 2009. I hope this trend gathers momentum, for availablity of broadband is the primary decision when I pick a hotel these days. What about you?
