          The IT people have the ability to block any web resources that are not in their policy. I would guess that they prohibit Pandora to reduce the load on their servers.

              I would agree with this.

              Especially in a hospital.  Most public wifi isn't filtered like at Starbucks (for the most part, I'm sure there are adult content filters in most places) but I would consider a hospital an open private network.  Streaming media uses a hella-lot of bandwidth and I'm sure they might not want their staff using facebook all day  :smileyhappy:
