McDonald's Begins Serving Free Wi-Fi At Most US Locations
All told, Wi-Fi has been added to around 11,500 of the company's 14,000 locations, and of course, it's completely free to those who pass by. It will be interesting to see if other fast food chains and stores in general begin to take notice here and try to mimic it. We love having free Wi-Fi at McD's, but considering that it's a "fast food" place, we aren't generally sitting down for long periods of time when dropping by for a large free and a huge tea. What would be awesome, however, is it more and more retail outlets and eateries began to copy this model. Wi-Fi is so easy to get these days that it really should be broadcast pretty much everywhere. If the place that somehow thrives on a "dollar menu" can afford to offer Wi-Fi at no charge to consumers, there's hardly an excuse for everyone else.
It's about time the Internet become truly ubiquitous, don't you agree?
