How Much It'll Cost If MGM Resorts' Free Public WiFi Isn't Fast Enough
In January, MGM Resorts announced it was bringing free WiFi to everyone.. in its public spaces. At the time, the gaming company mentioned that speedier service would be available for a fee. But, specific pricing wasn't mentioned.
drinking trip to Mandalay Bay last night put the answer in the palm of our hand when we put down the Crabbie's picked up our smart phone and found the screen shown above. Basic connectivity was offered at a speed of 256 kbps while a Web Browsing speed of 512 kbps was billed at $7.95 for 24 hours. For those in search of Media Streaming, 1.5 mbps was available for $14.95 for 48 hours.
Compare that pricing to do not do Internet kiosks which bill at a minimum of $5, plus .35 cents a minute, and Caesars Entertainment which offers property-wide roaming for $24.99 for 24 hours, or inter-property roaming for $34.99.
But, really.. does anyone (outside of, perhaps, conventioneers) actually pay for Internet connectivity in Vegas? Have you? Would you? Tell us why or why not in the comments below!
