LYDBROOK, U.K. -- Sovision and KooKu have provided the award winning Bath Spa Hotel, part of the Macdonald Group of Hotels, with a Wi-Fi KooKu (Trade Mark) hotspot service. The installation at the Bath Spa Hotel is based on the 802.11b wireless networking standard protocol and encompasses access points in the reception area, library and the outside terrace area.

This KooKu service allows guests to access the internet, email and online services at broadband speeds, with a wire less connection. KooKu is based on a prepaid system of payment which allows complete flexibility of service provision and removes the requirement for credit checks, credit card support, etc. Unlike other Wi-Fi networks who offer online sign up, which can take up to 20 minutes to complete, KooKu offers customers a fast and easy to access Internet service. The Bath Spa Hotel will provide their guest with MicroAPs, a driver free installation device replacing a wireless card, allowing guests without Wi-Fi enabled laptops to access the service, a cost effective, easy to use solution.

Andy Bunt, General Manager at the Bath Spa Hotel, explained, "This is a great opportunity to enhance our already excellent facilities which will provide our guests with instant plug and play wireless internet access using the KooKu network, allowing them to work away from the office whilst enjoying the comforts of the hotel. The bespoke nature of the service allows us to provide a tailored range of packages to our guests whilst the flexible branding presents us with multiple marketing opportunities."

KooKu Sales Director, Jeff Martin said, "We are delighted to be involved in enabling the Bath Spa Hotel with this cutting edge technology and the KooKu? network."
