Do you have Internet?

During the week I was whining about the slow speed of the Internet at my hotel. (It is faster than dial-up so I'll stop complaining!)
I called a nearby hotel and asked: "Do you have internet?"
"Yes. If you have your own computer and modem." the lady happily replied.
"Modem? Do you mean wireless?"
"No. You use the phone connection in the room." she explained.
"So, then the answer is No. You don't have Internet. You just have a telephone port."
"Is there a difference?" she asked.
So, I didn't change hotels after all.
