Staying connected while you travel is essential to staying productive. Imagine if you went a day or more without Internet access – would your inbox be over-flowing? Even if the answer is “no,” it’s always handy to know where you can plug in to the Web. Whether catching up on some in-flight research, or sending emails from the rest stop – reliable Internet service helps make it happen.

WiFi In The Air

Many airlines now allow travelers to use in-flight WiFi for a small fee (and if you’re in luck, sometimes it’s free!). Airlines understand the importance of remaining productive while traveling and have gone to great lengths to provide WiFi enabled flights. Currently, airlines providing WiFi enabled flights include Delta, Virgin Airlines, AirTran and American Airlines, but keep in mind, not all flights are WiFi enabled so make sure you double-check before booking. The folks over at Gizmodo held a Mile-High Showdown to find out which airline has the fastest service.

WiFi On The Road

Staying connected on the road is also a common option; plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and rest stops that are now offering free WiFi for patrons. Pull over, take a break from driving, and you can use the time to get some extra work done. Many coffee shop chains and major retailers offer some level of WiFi access.

High Speed Internet In Your Room

And when you’re not on the road or in the air, your hotel room should be set up to help you be the most productive. That’s why Country Inns & Suites offers free high-speed Internet in every room, at every location. We also offer WiFi in many locations and continue to expand our network.
