Company Faces Huge Fine For Blocking Convention Center WiFi Hotspots

With all the fines the FCC has been handing out lately, you'd think companies would have learned by now that the courts don't like this crap.

Another company is learning about the fine points of Section 333 of the Communications Act, which prohibits willful interference with any licensed or authorized radio communications. This time, it’s the folks who provided the Baltimore Convention Center’s in-house WiFi service who were caught by the FCC trying to block individual WiFi hotspot users from going online. Meanwhile, Hilton is also being slapped with a proposed fine for its failure to comply with an investigation into its alleged hotspot blocking.
