Whacked out wi-fi pricing

Steven Levitt writes today about some disparity in wifi pricing within Hyatt hotels. Price ranging from $10.95 to $300 a day. He goes on to look at the economics of this. By the way, if you haven’t read Freakonomics, it’s an easy, interesting summer read.

With the number of free offerings, how long will this type of pricing last? Even in little old Moose Jaw, we have free wifi in some places.

I’ll even add my house to the list. Come by 161 Marlborough and knock on the door and I’ll give you my WEP key.
