Airbnb considers a WiFi hotspot service to be an essential requirement for all properties, and classifies WiFi speeds into four categories. Airbnb provides
an app for hosts to measure the WiFi Internet speed and requires each host to publish the WiFi Internet speed at the property.
Airbnb hosts also have to protect themselves against any guest tampering with the property WiFi. Guest Internet managed WiFi permits hosts to install
the WiFi in a secure location at the property and managed the service remotely using the free Guest Internet Cloud service.
Airbnb hosts are accustomed to providing the same WiFi WPA2 encryption key to all guests, which will eventually mean that people other than guests will
have access to the property WiFi.
With Guest Internet managed WiFi the host can provide a unique login code for each guest, where the code is valid only for the duration of the guests
stay at the property. A host with several properties can manage the WiFi service of each using the Cloud service.
Hosts can manage the WiFi service using many control parameters; for example they can determine how many people can use the service, or set the
maximum data speeds per user. Where the Internet service is unreliable and continuous service is important Guest Internet can connect to two different
ISP services and combine the speeds to provide a faster service. On failure of one ISP service users are transferred to the ISP service that is functional.
Properties at remote locations without an ISP service can use Guest Internet to connect to a satellite service such as a geo-stationary antenna from HughesNet,
or the low earth orbit (LEO) antenna available from Starlink.
