Marriott Fined $600,000 for blocking WiFi Hotspots

People visiting a conference at Marriott’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center were being charged up to $1,000 per device to access the Marriott Wi-Fi network, and when they tried to use their own wireless hotspots they found their signals were being jammed.

As Consumerist reports, it was found that this jamming was intentional, and in some cases targeted de-authentication packets were sent to access points which dissociated consumers’ devices from their Wi-Fi networks.

In the United States, it is illegal to willfully interfere with any licensed radio communications, which led to the Marriot being fined $600,000. Similar laws exist in Canada; have you ever thought your Wi-Fi was being jammed purposefully?
