Extended Go Mobile Wi-Fi coverage at Hilton Malta
Hilton Malta, in partnership with Go Mobile, recently extended its Wi-Fi service. The new system delivers more extensive coverage of wireless broadband Internet and the hotel now boasts a full state-of-the-art Wi-Fi installation, covering all corners of the conference centre, guest rooms, public areas, restaurants, the Portomoso Marina and the Livingwell health club.
Over and above the standard access mechanism, Go Mobile has developed an application that allows Hilton Malta's guests to access Wi-Fi services and be directly charged to their respective hotel account.
Joseph Casapinta, Hilton Malta Information Systems manager, said mobile communications has become one of the most requested services nowadays. "We wanted to add value to our product by offering our guests and business clients secure and flexible Internet access for their mobile devices, PDAs and laptops," he said.
"Go Mobile has catered splendidly to this requirement via the development of a customised solution that has been made specifically to meet our needs and based on Hilton International information technology standards."
Thanks to this collaboration, guests staying at Hilton Malta can avail themselves of different access mechanisms at affordable packages. A walk-in guest may buy one of a selection of Wi-Fi vouchers that offer a bundle of connectivity hours that can be used over a number of days.
Guests may also log in directly through an authentication procedure and have the service charged automatically to their hotel account. The Wi-Fi service is now covering 7,000 m2 and will grow in line with the hotel's expansion so as to eventually cover 15,000 m2 within the next year.
Go Mobile engineering executive Michael Portelli Madden said: "The network offers extensive coverage and high speeds in every room and public area. The infrastructure is also geared to support the large number of conferences that take place at Hilton Malta.
"We worked closely with the Hilton to allow them to offer additional wireless access systems, which are flexible, fast, reliable, secure and easy to use".
