For anyone who has ever wanted to sit at Starbucks and browse the Internet but either wasn’t an AT&T customer or didn’t feel like ponying up for access, the company has some happy news for you.
About an hour ago on their Twitter page, the coffee giant announced:
We’re very excited to announce that coming July 1st: Free. 1 click. No registration WIFI at all US locations! :-)
On their site, they clarify that this is in “all company-operated stores,” which means that licensed outlets in places like airports or office buildings will probably not have the free WiFi.
In other maybe-not-news, a rumor running rampant over at Starbucks Gossip says that the Treat Receipt will be making a return to Starbucks starting June 29.
