Postings of speedtest.net / Ookla results at Hilton Properties

Minimum specifications of 'Stay Connected' (the Hilton Worldwide Guest Internet program) as of 2017:
  • Complimentary access to the hotelís standard internet connection offering must be provided to all Hilton Honors members with Blue, Silver or Gold level status who have booked through an approved channel. At a minimum, the member must be able to maintain simultaneous active connections on three devices.
  • Premium Internet access should be made available to guests at prices that are competitive with prevailing charges in the local market. The recommended maximum daily charge for Premium Internet access (wireless) is US$6.95. Diamond Hilton Honors members who have booked through an approved channel enjoy complimentary access to the hotelís highest speed (Premium) internet connection offering. At a minimum, the member must be able to maintain simultaneous active connections on three devices.
  • Minimum 6 Mbps download/upload (with Premium access) and 2Mbps download/upload (with Standard access).
  • Complimentary and Premium wireless Internet access must be available throughout the hotel.
  • Wireless Internet access must be installed in all guest accessible interior areas of the hotel to meet a minimum signal strength of -65 dBm (RSSI) on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands with a signal to noise ratio (SNR) of at least 30 dB.
  • The hotel is not permitted to apply total data consumption caps on a per user or device basis, throttle speeds by application type, or block/limit access to application types that lead to high bandwidth consumption rates.
  • All hotels must set individual bandwidth user caps which enable a minimum of 2 Mbps download/upload or higher for Complimentary Internet access and a minimum of 6 Mbps download/upload or higher for Premium Internet access and have sufficient bandwidth to deliver to that standard. The bandwidth user caps for the Premium offering must always be at least three times higher than the Complimentary offering (example: a 9Mbps download/upload Premium cap setting would be paired with a 3 Mbps download/upload or less Complimentary cap setting).
  • Hotels may offer wired access in addition to wireless.

In light of the new free vs premium internet tiers, please post a link to your speedtest.net results, along with the Hilton brand name and location. Note if it's the free or premium service, and if premium, how much you paid.

Where this is really going to get interesting is when people do this at the same property...before and after paying the "high speed" upcharge. Wonder what the difference will look like.

I've been using the free internet the past couple of days here, but noticed it was extremely sluggish today so opted for the $4.95 charge.

I'll run another Speed Test tomorrow after it downgrades back to the standard internet.

Wow 5 bucks gets you a whopping 3 mbps. So instead of year 2001 speeds, you get bumped up to about year 2004. For those paying for the exceedingly fast 3 mbps, what's the streaming video experience like from say youtube or netflix. Bet the experience is not that good. Does Hilton or AT&T not have any shame?

That is more like 1995 speeds if you ask me. 2001 I had 100Mbit/s in my home.

As I complained about in the HH Ambassador thread...

63/4.12/2.23/$25 per day resort charge, Grand Wailea on Maui. (Advertised as 5mps service, with a $15/day upgrade to 10mps--and I'm not spending $15 to find out if it's any faster ).

Tethering with my phone just now, Verizon LTE: 77/10.84/4.04. (Unlimited, non-throttled data).
