McDonald's has Free Wi-Fi Now

On Friday McDonald’s officially added free Wi-Fi to the menu at most U.S. locations. Now you can have your Big Mac, fries and free Wi-Fi at 11,500 McDonald’s across the country.

I was never pleased (and didn't use the service) that the fast food chain was charging $2.95 for two hours of Wi-Fi internet access, but it seems that AT&T swooped in to the rescue. By eliminating the cost, McDonald’s is taking yet another step to position their brand as an alternative to higher priced coffee retail chains.

Gramps really likes their Café Mocha, so I bet we will can take our mini computers for afternoon coffee now!

  1. That's great news! I was surprised when I tried to get on their wifi and found you had to pay, so I hadn't tried again.
