It was announced on June 14, 2010 – Starbucks is now going to offer Wi-Fi at all company-operated Starbucks stores in the US. Starting July 1, 2010 you’ll be able to enjoy free, one-click, unlimited Wi-Fi!
What does it mean?
- Free – no Starbucks Card required (FINALLY!)
- One-Click – no username or password needed
- Unlimited – no 2-hour restriction (like before) !!!
Personally, this is a huge deal for me. I love Starbucks, but whenever I went to use my card to access the internet I felt it was a hassle and just not worth it. You had to have a card – no exceptions! AND there was a time limit… so just forget it! But after July 1 – it will be available to all! This is so beneficial for those that like to relax and surf while sipping their cup of joe!
Starbucks also announced that free Wi-Fi is just a start. Howard Schultz announced a new digital experience we’ll be launching at Starbucks stores across the country later this fall – I am a little unsure what this will entail but I hope more great to go along with the free Wi-Fi!! I am so glad Starbucks finally realized it was time to offer free Wi-fi, after all, the little guys are doing it!
