Last week, the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau issued an Order imposing a $750,000 penalty against Smart City, a company that operates and manages Wi-Fi networks at several conference facilities.  The company admitted that it blocked personal Wi-Fi hotspots, preventing guests at these conference facilities from establishing or maintaining a Wi-Fi network independent of the one established by the company.  In addition to paying the penalty, the company agreed not to block Wi-Fi networks in the future.  The Order is similar to the $600,000 penalty imposed by the Commission last year against Marriott for obstructing consumer Wi-Fi hotspots at its convention center in Nashville (See, Vol. XI, Issue 40).
