Marriott Wants to Block Personal Hotspots

It’s unthinkable, but true.  And it’s not the first time Marriott has pulled this stunt.  The first time they were caught blocking guest’s WiFi hotspots they were fined $600,000 by the FCC and mandated to file compliance reports every three months for three years.  Now they’re at it again, this time petitioning the FCC for the right to block guests’ personal WiFi hotspots.  They claim that they want to protect their guests from rogue access points, and only from conference and meeting spaces.  From what I’ve been reading on the matter, I don’t trust them.  Decide what you think.  Read more here: http://www.techtimes.com/articles/24116/20150101/marriot-petitions-fcc-to-block-personal-wi-fi-hotspots.htm
