Starbucks plans to make Wi-Fi public to everyone at all locations starting July 1
What's better than sipping on a nice and cool coffee drink at the thousands of Starbucks locations littered across the country? Well how about surfing the web on your mobile handset via Wi-Fi? For the millions across the country that go through the front doors of Starbucks locations, customers are surely aware about the Wi-Fi network that's available through AT&T – which can be done once you go through a rigorous registration process. In addition, customers will have to pay for the service in order to enjoy surfing the web while slowly drinking their paid beverage. However, things are looking a bit more cheerful starting on July 1st as it looks like the company will be making it available for free to the public. So that means bye bye to those lengthy registration processes and hourly fees to enjoy some Wi-Fi action on your mobile handset. With close to 12,000 locations around the country, you can always be connected if you happen to find network coverage a bit spotty in certain locations.
