WI-FI Internet Access via AT&T Hot Spots

Updated: June 19, 2012

I spoke with an AT&T representative today and here is what I found out.

What was the $19.95 monthly charge was actually for a yearly plan that would allow you to access any AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot not just ours. Since people were thinking this was just a one month one time $19.95 fee (which is how it was explained to me) and later finding out it was a yearly plan billed monthly AT&T stopped this premier service to eliminate any confusion about what that plan was. I apologize for any confusion about the monthly fee I did not realize it was a yearly plan billed monthly.

I was informed that if you have High Speed Internet access at home or your business and have a login and password for that access you can use that very same login and password on one device at any AT&T wi-fi hotspot without having to pay an access fee. Also if you have a AT&T iPhone or smartphone it will authenticate through any AT&T wi-fi hotspot again without having to pay an access fee.

For everyone else the only rate remaining is the $9.95 for 24-hour access. Let me repeat the service is installed, maintained, and operated by AT&T we do not receive any revenue from this charge.

If you need help connecting please call the AT&T service number 1-877-929-7678 for assistance. I hope this helps. -BruceF

Today’s post is a quick one but one that has created many questions so here goes.

The Resort offers Internet Access via AT&T WI-FI hotspots which are available in the villas and at common areas around the resort. The cost is a flat $9.95 for 24 hours of access.

AT&T installed, owns and controls the amount for the daily and monthly rates for the resort wide Wi-Fi network. We do not control the charges nor do we receive any of the income from those charges. To answer the point that most hotels have free Wi-Fi access I can only say that the cost of the infra-structure to wire a single building is far less than to have a complete access network available over a 100 acre area of a resort. When you are on property you will be able to see the Wi-Fi landing page and use the drop down feature on plan types to review which one is most affordable for your planned usage.

If you are experiencing any difficulties with signing up or gaining access you can call AT&T tech support directly for assistance at this number: 1-877-929-7678.

I hope this helps to answer everyone’s questions.
