Starbucks to offer free Internet access in Canadian coffee shops starting July 1

30/06/2010 2:35:00 PM

The Canadian Press
TORONTO – Starbucks will start offering unlimited Internet access in its Canadian and U.S. coffee shops starting July 1.

Previously, customers could get two hours of wireless access a day if they had a Starbucks loyalty card.

Bell, which is the Internet provider for Starbucks, also let its customers get online access with their coffee.

Access was also available for a fee.

Starbucks has 750 company-operated stores across Canada.

The Seattle-based coffee chain also plans to offer customers access to subscription-based online content in its U.S. stores this fall.

No Canadian plans have been announced.

Not a big fan of Starbucks myself, but most 2nd Cup locations have free WiFi already.

Personally, I wouldn’t go into Starbucks if they gave the computer for free…..

I’ll have to get my passport in order to get free access.

You are right the coffee is not free, and in fact is overpriced.

It is vile stuff in my experience…a few years back we were at a conference and they were giving it away…still couldn’t drink it even with equal parts cream and sugar. A few coffee shops here in Brandon offer free access already and their coffee is waaaay better than Starbucks IMHO.
