The hotel of the future, giving you 10/100 switched ethernet to the room
(a hub at extra charge), and the hotel then gets an uplink to X NSP, based
on number of rooms and average usage.

Along with that comes online gaming among hotel guests (you can have a PC
installed - laptop for the suites - for extra charge), with online games
installed, where hotel guests connect to a hotel gaming server (quake
server for example), and play among themselves.

Of course, downstairs in the game rooms, there will be also computers who
can be used for the el-cheapo guests, if they can't afford one in the
room, in order to play (price/time of usage).
