Meet your friendly room service attendant. He's the man who attends to the needs of guests at the Hotel Intercontinental in London, which is introducing Net access in 50 of its 'business rooms'. The system uses a TV and cordless QUERTY infra-red keyboard to let users browse the Web and send email. There is also a hotel Web site with links to popular electronic newspapers, magazines and specialist information. All TVs are connected to a 64Kbps leased line and users pay a time-based rate of 50p for the first three minutes and 15p a minute thereafter. The system is expected to be running by April.
