In a small guest house, how would one sell internet time? Like for example, connect to a portal and buy time etc?

I have stayed in many B&Bs where you have to pay for wifi. I don't. I tether to my mobile. But it is common practice to charge for it.
Reason I don't pay for it is because the signal is generally poor - and I find that very annoying.
Not sure what system they use - sorry.

Mikrotik routers offer amazing hotspot service. You can offer trials, different packages ect.

I'd say let your customers get 30 minutes free and then pay if they want. But make the speed basic and have cheap pricing. Otherwise i doubt that anyone would buy it

Just buy a router with throttle enabled ports.

configure one port (the one to the guest house access point)

visitors get "free" internet - limited to 1Mbps.

But for a "small fee" they get 100mbps, uncapped.

Even the likes of protea hotel only give you a small amount free and you must pay for any more than that.
