Starbucks to offer free wi-fi from the new year?

25 November 2008

Good news if you're a corporate dog who likes to surf while sipping on a grande caramel macchiato with extra caramel, half and half, extra vanilla, whip and an extra shot. Or a coffee.

Electric Pig has word from a Starbucks deep throat that free wi-fi will become the norm in their coffee shops next year. Currently you need a T-Mobile account to go online in Starbucks, or you can pay-as-you-go if you have a secret deposit of Nazi gold to pay your way.

While the service could be introduced as early as January, Starbucks refused to confirm the rumour, saying only that the “timing of the programme and specific benefits associated with Starbucks Card holders in the UK, and other markets outside the US, are still being determined.”

Yeah, yeah. Just hurry the hell up, will you? How else am I meant to look like a jumped-up hipster tosspot with a MacBook?
