"The project was completed on time and on budget and the LodgeNet solution has enhanced the stay for guests since we re-opened in April." 

LodgeNet supports hotels and their guests through dedicated contact center support personnel trained to address customers' specific Internet needs. In addition to 24/7 call center support, LodgeNet's Network Operating Center (NOC) proactively monitors the network installation verifying the network's health. With the support of LodgeNet's nationwide employee based field service network, LodgeNet is positioned to handle the hotel's connectivity needs.
