New Meaning to Expensive WiFi

I'm here at the Alcatel-Lucent user forum on the day of love in the city of love getting a brain dump on Alcatel-Lucent's
future enterprise directions. Checked into the hotel Concorde La Fayette last night and found the perfect antidote to any complaints for the high-cost of WiFi access in airports. The hotel Lafayette charges, get this, a whopping $39 (30 Euros) for 24 hour access -- and no you can't spread that over multiple days. Now that's one way to get press into the press room where, you guessed it, WiFi access is bountiful and cheap.
