McDonald’s To Start Offering Free Wi-Fi in January

mcdonalds The Wall Street Journal is reporting that McDonald’s is planning on offering free Wi-Fi in their fast food chain locations in the US. Currently they charge a $2.95 fee for 2 hours of Wi-Fi.

The service is run in partnership with AT&T and will be available in 11,000 of its 14,000 domestic locations. This is not exactly going to help many BlackBerry users but it is definitely an added perk. Its also great for international travelers who don’t want to pay roaming fees but want to check their email while out. There are McDonald’s all over the place…

  1. So… Starting in January, Verizon Wireless BlackBerry users that subscribe to Verizon’s Mobile Broadband (aka “tethering”) add-on will be able to use AT&T’s WiFi service for free at McDonald’s, but they will NOT be able to access Verizon’s Wi-Fi service that is being offered for free to other (i.e., non-PDA) Verizon Mobile Broadband customers? Sounds like yet another great marketing faux pas, Big Red! 😉

  2. Its already free here in NSW Australia

  3. 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

    • Cheap food? Late hours? Locations EVERYWHERE? And now free WIFI? What’s next – free health clinics? Free insulin? Free Lipitor? Common McDonalds – BE RESPONSIBLE!

  4. Yeah, it may be free in Australia now, but the time and download restrictions are far too harsh!

    I never thought I’d say this, but it was a better service when they charged for it, when the time and download restrictions were a lot more lenient…
