O2 to bring free Wi-fi to 1,600 UK pubs
Pubs, restaurants and other public places that offer ‘free Wi-fi’ are all well and good, but more often than not we’re forced to endure different infuriating sign-ups and login nonsense for every single place that offers us free online access. In short, it’s often more trouble than it’s worth.
O2 might be about to do something about that, and have signed a deal to provide Wi-fi in 1,600 Mitchell & Butlers pubs and restaurants by the end of 2012, including chains such as Harvester, Toby Carvery, Vintage Inns, Browns, All Bar One and O’Neill’s, claiming that their service will be: “fast, genuinely free to customers, reliable and simple-to-use”.
Another good reason to while away a few hours in the great British faceless pub chain outlet then. How much does free Wi-fi matter to you when it comes to your choice of pub?
