Free Wi-Fi at McDonalds

Posted by Sam Churchill on

McDonalds will soon start offering free wireless Internet access at its U.S. restaurants as part of the fast-food chain’s transformation from its hamburger roots into a hang-out destination, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Starting in mid-January, McDonald’s will lift a $2.95 fee that it had charged customers for two hours of wireless Internet access, available at about 11,000 of its 14,000 domestic locations, McDonald’s USA Chief Information Officer David Grooms said in an interview.

McDonald’s represents one of out six hot spots in the U.S., the company said, citing JiWire, a wi-fi ad delivery service. Partner AT&T provides McDonald’s stores with the wireless service.

Free Wi-Fi is now the norm.
