    SINGAPORE, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The Singapore
 Marriott Hotel (Marriott) and 5G Wireless Communication Pte Ltd (5G) have
 entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to install a high-speed wireless
 data network at the hotel.  By June this year, guests will enjoy the benefits

 high-speed broadband, voice, data, and Internet services.

 facility and its surrounding premises.
     Marriott's Director of Finance, Mr. Larry Yap, said that the hotel's
 decision to go the broadband way shows how guest and visitor comfort is of
 paramount importance.  "The business traveler is especially lured with
 convenient and economical high speed wireless Internet, email and private
 network access on a road trip.  We want to enable our guests to operate a
 temporary office online with high speed efficiency."
     High-speed communication, Mr. Yap added, is an essential part of doing
 business anywhere.  "We place great emphasis on servicing our guests' needs as
 benefits our reputation as a premier business hotel.  Wireless access within

 important to recognize that every hotel is unique and operates differently.
 5G will tailor the solutions and financial models to suit Marriott's
 requirements."  He said:  "Hotel services including state-of-the-art
 high-speed access must be designed to solve all the guest's problems, cater to
 his every need, and make sure his visit is a success.  The ability to access
 the net at the speed of lightning could become an amenity the discerning guest
 will change hotels over."

 the hospitality trade to work for the Marriott.  "Our plan is to set new
 standards in wireless broadband networking for the hospitality industry," said
