The article outlines the implications generated by using coaxial cable and unshielded twisted pair (UTP) infrastructure for the delivery of digital content, interactive television services, and high-speed Internet access (HSIA). It asserts how guest expectations mandate a hotel TV infrastructure be capable of rendering television with UTP infrastructure that supports Internet service. It also discusses what hoteliers must consider in assessing the viability of cable and UTP infrastructures.
