SINGAPORE, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to the need of today's traveller to stay connected at all times, award-winning Asian hospitality group Meritus Hotels & Resorts announced the roll-out of free Wi-Fi service across the Group's properties in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China.
Guests can expect to enjoy straightforward access to the complimentary amenity throughout their stay, not only from the guestrooms but from anywhere within the hotels' premises.
The service allows every guest sufficient bandwidth to exchange data across virtual private networks and social media channels, as well as download and upload reasonably-sized files, including rich media formats.
