Is there WiFi available at the Ernest Morial Convention Center?

After realizing that their network wasn’t keeping pace with demands, the Ernest Morial Convention Center upgraded their network in 2013, despite the fact that their existing network was less than two years old at the time. Now, WiFi is available in all the public spaces, but to get exhibitor Internet or WiFi access on the show floor is extremely expensive. As a result, many people depend on Internet solutions providers like Trade Show Internet for access to affordable, reliable, fast Internet.

How much does WiFi Internet connection cost per day at the Ernest Morial Convention Center?

Exhibitor WiFi/Internet solutions at the Ernest Morial Convention Center are pricey, particularly for dedicated Internet coverage services. It will cost you as much as $3,446.25 for a “shared” Internet solution with 15 IP addresses. A shared connection means that you have no idea how fast your connection is going to be, because other people have access to the same resource and if they are using a ton of bandwidth, it limits the amount of bandwidth left over for others to use. The number of “IP addresses” just refers to the number of devices you’re able to connect to the network.

Their rates start at $1,100 for shared Internet services with 1 IP address and each additional IP address is available at $129 each, but this is only if you order 21 days or more in advance.

If you are not interested in taking a gamble on how much data you’re actually going to receive, you will require dedicated bandwidth. Dedicated WiFi/Internet packages with 27 IP addresses start at $3,993, while for 57 IP address the price is $6,200. You can also purchase wireless hotspot service for $1,500 for up to 10 devices.

On the other hand, third party providers of Internet/WiFi, like Trade Show Internet, can get you significant savings (and streamlined ordering) in comparison to the “preferred”, in-house provider’s rate. This is partly because the in-house provider is forced to share a portion of its revenues with the venue. As a result, many people depend on Internet solutions providers like Trade Show Internet for access to reliable, fast Internet.
