Marriott to Partner with AT&T for Guest Internet Services
The two announced a deal that makes AT&T the “preferred network” for its properties as well as a service provider for its own systems.
AT&T will also help Marriott move many of its business applications to the cloud later this year and will provide a 4G LTE backup solution to maintain network continuity in case of any local service interruptions. In addition, Marriott plans to move its voice services to the Internet as well, using AT&T to accomplish the task.
The company will also provide a dedicated support center for Marriott and its guests.
Unreliable Internet has been cited for four years in a row as the leading complaint by frequent travelers in Frequent Business Traveler’s Hotel Pet Peeves research in what can be considered a testament to the need to be connected.
