Hotel pricing enigma

(that may not be that enigmatic)

Has anyone else noticed that the higher the price of the hotel, the more likely it is to charge for internet access? I do quite a bit of travelling on my own decidedly thin dime so I usually stay in one of the bargain chains but occasionally I find myself in a nice, corporate-booked hotel. Free internet is almost universal in the cheap places but it's likely to run you $10 a night in a place with valet parking and a fitness center.

I assume this is another case of prices being driven by expense accounts, but does anyone else have an alternative explanation?
