Mount Washington Adds Single Digits Connectivity

The historic Mount Washington Hotel and Resort and Single Digits, Inc., the preeminent provider of business-class hotspot management software, today announced the deployment of managed wireless and wired Internet service for hotel guests or individuals choosing to golf, ski or swim at one of Mount Washington Hotel’s surrounding recreation areas. The new Single Digits’ Internet service features a Mount Washington-branded welcome Web page that automatically appears when guests first access the Internet via their Microsoft Explorer or Netscape browsers. Laptop or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) users may visit affiliated resorts and recreation areas free-of-charge by clicking on various links or access the Internet directly by selecting desired usage time and paying via credit card.

“The Mount Washington Hotel prides itself on remaining sensitive to its heritage while striving to blend in modern amenities which enhance our guests’ work or leisure experience,” said Wayne Presby, resort chairman. “Today, secure, easy access to high-speed Internet connectivity has become an amenity that guests expect to find and just as important, receive quality service and support for.”

The Mount Washington Hotel’s new wireless (Wi-Fi) and wired Internet services encompass the following areas:

—The Mount Washington Hotel - wired service among 200 guest rooms & suites; Wi-Fi broadcast Internet services to numerous stately meeting and banquet rooms, The Pool Lounge/heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi area as well as the Clubhouse/Nordic Center.

Managed Internet Service Provided by Single Digits

Single Digits’ business-class hotspot management software has been selected by resort communities, marinas, airports, restaurants and schools throughout the world. The intelligent software resides within Single Digits’ Network Operation Center, where the company is able to remotely manage, monitor and support its customers’ high-speed Internet service—alleviating them from hiring additional technical support or directly addressing connectivity issues. Unlike competitive hotspot offerings that broadcast their goods and services at the customer site or allocate only a portion of the connectivity proceeds to the hotspot host, Single Digits’ business-class solution empowers the hotspot host to become an actual Internet Service Provider and retain 100 percent of the proceeds while showcasing their goods and services.

“We are honored to have been selected by The Mount Washington Hotel to serve the resort and its communities with managed Internet services,” Frank Hayes, CEO, Single Digits, Inc. “The hotel’s strict standards and attention to detail have attracted U.S. presidents and celebrities from around the world, our hotspot hosting services will help extend these high standards to persons of business or leisure seeking Internet connectivity.”
