Hotel WiFi Test Launches a Browser Extension [Travel & Leisure Close - Up]
(Travel & Leisure Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Hotel WiFi Test has launched a browser extension that displays information about a hotel's WiFi speed and quality onto Hotels.com, Expedia, Booking.com and TripAdvisor.
According to a release, previously, this content was only available on hotelwifitest.com, and users had to switch back and forth from their favorite booking site. Now, this experience is streamlined: users can see WiFi speed information on hotel booking sites alongside standard hotel attributes, such as customer reviews, price, and location. The WiFi information block respects the style of each site, so it feels like a native element on the page.
Studies continue to show that hotel WiFi is a top amenity, but WiFi quality is also among the most frequent traveler complaints. Hotel booking sites tend to avoid displaying negative information about hotels, with the exception of customer reviews. This may be understandable for their relationship with hotels, but it's not so convenient for travelers.
