Most visitors agree that the Grand Canyon has natural beauty unsurpassed anywhere in the world. What our beloved canyon does not have, however, is state of the art wireless broadband service. st Visitors expect this kind of service. The 21 Century idea of taking a vacation and getting away from it all does not extend to leaving one's wireless broadband connections behind. The lack of these things is a huge negative when it comes to attracting and retaining visitors here, as is any tourist area without high performance wireless broadband. It is also a disadvantage for the mostly small businesses around the Grand Canyon that serve visitors. The guests in our lodging establishments sometimes look dumbstruck when they learn they can't use their portable devices the way they do back home. Those of us who operate businesses here year round also miss the productivity gains we would get from advanced wireless broadband. For all these admittedly self-serving reasons, the Grand Canyon Hotel Operators Association expresses its support for approval of the AT&TT-Mobile merger. The benefits of expanded wireless coverage it would deliver to the Grand Canyon lead us to ask you to support this proposal. Dhiru "Robin" Prema President Shakti Investments Inc.
