All RIU Hotels in the Mexican Caribbean Are Now Meeting the Demand For Fast and Secure Connectivity With GigNet’s Advanced Broadband
GigNet, a Digital Infrastructure company with an extensive regional fiber-optic broadband network from Costa Mujeres, north of Cancun, through the Hotel Zone of Tulum, announced today it is providing broadband for multiple locations in the Mexican Caribbean for RIU Hotels & Resorts.
"Each of the 12 RIU Hotels & Resorts in the Mexican Caribbean (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Playa Car, and the Riviera Maya strip) have their own personality, and they also have a lot in common: white sandy beaches, the best 24-hour all-inclusive service, a varied gastronomical experience, fun entertainment programs for all ages, and something that our guests are now demanding as a prerequisite: high-speed Internet," commented Miguel Reynés Massanet, C.I.O. RIU Hotels & Resorts. "The pandemic has changed how people travel and what they expect from their travel and hospitality providers. Hygiene, safety, and convenience are at the top of the list of demands and high-speed Internet is needed to be able to fulfill all these requirements. GigNet has satisfied all our requests and we are very happy with the service they have provided."
Mark Carney, OBE, President of GigNet Mexico, added, "Travelers are depending on Internet more than ever, and we are thrilled about giving guests at RIU Hotels & Resorts the opportunity to experience world class connectivity. We are supplying high-speed broadband to enable guests to share their travel experience with loved ones and enjoy simultaneous use of cloud and streaming applications such as Zoom calls, Netflix streaming, and PlayStation gaming in their rooms or anywhere on the resort property."
