Taco Bell Will Bring WiFi To 5,600 Restaurants Over The Next 4 Years

Taco Bell apparently believes the secret eighth layer to its metaphorical burrito is free WiFi. Perhaps looking to edge in on the foot traffic coffee shops and bookstores draw in with the service, Taco Bell announced plans to set up 5,600 restaurants over the next four years for wireless internet.

In a press release, Taco Bell and partner IndoorDirect estimate 48 million customers will eventually use the service each month. That’s a lot of iPads being used as burrito supreme placemats.

Where is your favorite place to score free WiFi?
