How to find the hotels, beaches and airports with the best Wi-Fi

Mark Hachman | July 29, 2014
If you're looking for a place to stay this summer where you can hole up with Netflix in the evening, avoid some of the hotel industry's biggest names.

On my family's recent beach trip, we brought along an older Roku, which we planned to connect to our rented house's WiFi hotspot (or, alternatively, to one of two Comcast Xfinity Wifi hotspots that my phone could see). In the end, however, we ditched media entirely--no Netflix, no television, and barely even any web surfing at all in the evenings.

The bottom line? If you're going to travel for business, it's worth planning for Wi-Fi availability as much as anything else. But sometimes a vacation means leaving those wireless devices at home, too.
