Accor says it has completed installation of wireless, high-speed internet access in its Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties across North America.

Accor contracted with AT&T to provide managed network services and teamed with Teledex to provide Wi-Fi equipment and support to more than 600 Motel 6 and Studio 6 corporate properties nationwide.
