SIOUX FALLS SD, June 20, 2006 – LodgeNet Entertainment Corporation, the world leader in interactive TV and broadband solutions to hotels, today opened its appearance at HITEC 2006 by announcing the following highlights relative to its high-speed Internet access (HSIA) business:

  •     As part of the company’s Customer Satisfaction Initiative, LodgeNet commissioned a third-party survey of hotel general managers served by LodgeNet and three other major HSIA providers. GMs responding to the survey generally reported 30% higher satisfaction with LodgeNet-provided systems and service than with that provided by the other major HSIA providers. Additionally, 93% of current LodgeNet served GMs said they would “probably” or “definitely” recommend LodgeNet to another hotel.
  •     LodgeNet has launched its industry-first Entertainment 2Go service, which enables guests to quickly, easily and legally download movies from an on-site edge server to their laptops. According to Scott C. Petersen, LodgeNet President & CEO, guests using Entertainment 2Go with a wired connection can download a full-length movie in as little as five minutes.
  •     LodgeNet recently released an enhanced guest interface that more closely resembles the menuing of the company’s interactive TV system, resulting in a more consistent cross-platform experience.

    “These achievements reflect our ongoing focus on HSIA, which is a ‘must-have’ service for many travelers,” commented Petersen. “We are extremely pleased with the results of the recent hotel survey, which evidences our commitment to outstanding service and solutions to the hotel industry.”

    LodgeNet invites HITEC attendees to HSIA demonstrations and discussion in Booth 301 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, today through Thursday June 22.
