Guests should be aware that our service is VERY slow and they are to avoid relying on it for video conferencing or streaming.

Internet service is provided as a courtesy and BMSC does not guarantee performance or availability. Service may also be interrupted without warning to ensure  BMSC core operations are not disrupted.
