Hol­i­day mak­ers want in­ter­net even as they es­cape the mod­ern world. Some FNQ re­sorts were part of a case study by high speed in­ter­net provider NBN Co. All re­sorts re­ported get­ting off the grid was no longer a sell­ing point and that guests ex­pected to be able to keep in touch with fam­ily or ac­cess emails and so­cial me­dia while on hol­i­day. Newell Beach’s The Beach Villa and Azure re­sort owner Wendy van der Wolf said if Wi-Fi was not of­fered at her prop­er­ties, cus­tomers would sim­ply book else­where, with the in­ter­net used to look up lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties.
