Free wi-fi at Starbucks


By

AT&T and Starbucks have mutually announced plans to deliver AT&T Wi-FiSM service at more than 7,000 company-operated Starbucks locations across the US.

"This is what our customers have been waiting for--free Starbucks-quality Wi-Fi," said Chris Bruzzo, CTO, Starbucks. "Through our new partnership with AT&T, we also welcome their millions of current customers who can now come in and enjoy free Wi-Fi as part of their daily Starbucks Experience."

Beginning this spring, Starbucks Card holders can enjoy up to two hours of free Wi-Fi service per day at Starbucks locations offering Wi-Fi access, while more than 12 million AT&T broadband and AT&T U-verse Internet customers get unlimited free access to the service. In addition, more than 5 million AT&T's remote business customers can access Wi-Fi service at Starbucks locations.

Additionally, anyone can buy access to AT&T / Starbucks Wi-Fi for $4 (two hours). Monthly membership will also be available for $20 per month and will include access to any of AT&T's 70,000 hot spots in 89 countries worldwide.

Editor's note: T-Mobile has been dumped, unceremoniously. That's gotta sting.

And, although Apple isn't mentioned, but their fingerprints are all over this. The hidden, guiding hand of El Jobs, perhaps...
