Wayport signs on European hotels

Wayport is signing new agreements with major Nordic hotel chains. Over the
last months, Wayport has signed agreements to deliver its guest Internet services to
First Hotels, Restel hotels (the management company for Cumulus, Holiday Inn, Ramada
and Rantasipi Hotels in Finland), Norlandia Hotels & Resorts and Zleep hotels.
Guests at these hotels can now access Internet via Wayport’s services. The
agreements place Wayport’s public PC solution or high-speed Internet deployment in
more than 80 hotel properties. These new customers in Nordic countries further
strengthen Wayport’s position as one of the largest network and application
providers for the hospitality market in the region.

“Our customers depend on reliable Internet services for their business needs,” says
Mr. Torbj¿rn Slåtto, VP Marketing for First Hotels. “Wayport has years of
experience and a proven track record of providing innovative top quality solutions
to match these needs as well as meeting our brand requirements.”   


“We are very pleased that we can work with the major Nordic hotel chains to offer
their guests state-of-the-art services, and we look forward to a long-term
partnership and building solutions that meet the future needs of the hotels and
their guests,” says Ib Drachmann-Hansen, President at Wayport EMEA. “The
strengthening of our Nordic markets is another step forward in our European growth
strategy, aiming to be the leading service and applications provider in the
hospitality sector throughout the continent.”
