Free WiFi coming to McDonald’s!

One of my favorite places to blog and work is McDonald’s because I can get a cheap large, regular ice coffee for about 2 bucks.  Not only is coffee cheaper than Starbucks, McDonald’s actually has “tables” where I can sit and work without fighting other caffeine addicts.

Starting mid-January, McDonald will be offering free WiFi.

The free Wi-Fi will reportedly be available at about 11,000 of 14,000 U.S. locations. McDonald’s has used Wi-Fi provided by AT&T Inc. for several years, after first launching the service at 75 locations in San Francisco in 2003.

This doesn’t really change things for me though as I will still use my broadband USB, which is already fast enough and more secure than any free WiFi I can get.  But it might be a good thing, perhaps there will  be more people with laptops at McDonald’s so I am not the only one.

    Are you kidding me? This is just another ploy by McDonalds to get customers to stay longer. Don't let them kill our children! It's time to start slimming down America – take care of your families and YOURSELF! Here's a great link to help you gets started. Free WIFI is everywhere – don't support this KILLER corporation.
