MGM Resorts International has released a free of charge Wi-Fi network at its Strip casinos, permitting guests free wireless Internet in public areas throughout the company's famous resorts.

In a prepared statement, MGM Resorts advised the system is currently live at Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage. The system is expected to be installed later this year in the Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur.

In many Vegas Strip casinos, Wi-Fi is only available to hotel guests or convention attendees. Under the new MGM Resorts system, basic Internet access will become available to anyone who comes into public areas such as the lobby, pool area, casino and restaurants. The system, developed with leading IT firm, Cisco Systems, doesn't require a password.

MGM Resorts hotel guests will receive upgraded service, and convention attendees can upgrade to a higher-speed system if they wish.

In a statement, MGM Resorts officials said the Wi-Fi system will turn their entire properties into a hot spot and support tens of thousands of guests with multiple Internet-enabled devices.

Sounds like one of the more innovative and customer friendly initiatives to hit the Strip in quite a while. More of this and Vegas might be able to get back to its glory days once again.

Look out for Macau casinos to replicate the system soon, never ones to get left behind in gaming technology initiatives,
