Starting this spring, Starbucks is also giving its card holders two free hours of free Wi-Fi service per day at participating locations.So we really aren't talking about free wifi, we're talking about no-additional-cost-for-subscribers. I guess I'll stick with the genuine free wifi of my local coffee shop.
"This is what our customers have been waiting for -- free Starbucks-quality wi-fi," Chris Bruzzo, chief technology officer for Starbucks, said in a statement. All Starbucks employees, about 100,000 of them, will also get free AT&T Wi-Fi accounts to use in the stores.
For java junkies that do not have either an AT&T subscription or a Starbucks card, Starbucks will sell two-hour blocks of wireless Internet at $3.99 or a monthly membership of $19.99 per month.
