Starbucks to Offer Free Wi-Fi On July 1st

Starbucks has finally joined the wireless revolution, by announcing that they’ll be offering free Wi-Fi at 6,700 locations beginning on July 1st. This monumental news comes six months after McDonalds began offering free Wi-Fi to customers in 11,500 of its restaurants. This strategic move by Starbucks will ultimately result in increased revenue and traffic at many of its famous Seattle-based coffee houses — in some ways, even more than McDonalds.
