Forget HBO, we've got DSL

Half of all U.S. hotel rooms offer broadband. Too bad only 25 percent have ATMs in their lobbies.

A study by the American Hotel & Lodging Association on Wednesday found that half of all hotel rooms in the U.S. have a broadband connection. That's up from 23 percent in 2001.

I remember as a kid seeing motels with signs saying, "We have cable," or "We have HBO." They've been replaced by "We have broadband." Believe it or not, more hotel rooms have broadband than the 25 percent that have ATM machines in their lobbies. Shocking.
