Another case of captive audience
Patients should (if they are physically able) lie on their stomachs so that they can be shafted more easily by service providers, or they could just leave their wallets open on the bedside cabinets. Another case of rip-off Britain, and again patients are easy targets. It was only recently that there were reports of the excessive charges incurred when parking on hospital grounds for the purposes of receiving treatment or visiting sick friends and relatives.
I stay in hotels quite frequently and would like to make use of the internet, but I'm put off by the excessive 50p per minute charge no matter how much bandwidth I use. Thankfully my generous hotel caps this at £20 per night, but this is almost what I pay monthly at home for a dedicated broadband link that I have to share with nobody.
