The article reports that hotels are losing money on landline phones as more guests are using their cellular phones. John Spindler of LGC Wireless suspects that hotels have realized there are better benefits in catering guests with cell phones rather than pushing the wired phone service. Jeremy Rock of Rock IT Group said that some hotels will continue to fight for the landline, but newer hotels are recognizing the need for cell phone amplification in their establishments.
