In the immediate aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing a few weeks ago, the Boston police quickly instructed bystanders to leave the area and return to their homes and hotels until the imminent danger had subsided.
According to Andrew Yorra, co-founder and vice president of Eleven Wireless, which helps hotels build and manage their WiFi networks, a standard amount of bandwidth in a hotel with free WiFi is usually about 1mbps per each room. So you can check your email, surf the web, update your social media and maybe stream some music.
If a hotel has bandwidth somewhere between 2 and 5mbps per room, that will allow you to upload/download photos and videos, stream music and do some video Skyping. Beyond 5mbps, the internet is your oyster (pretty much.)
Of course, these speeds vary wildly from hotel to hotel and at this point, it's pretty impossible to say which hotel brand is doing it best. But what we've been doing over the past year (and for the forseeable future) is testing hotel speeds. You can do this on a speed testing website like Speedtest.net.
