McDonald's to offer free, unlimited Wi-Fi
McDonald's restaurants may soon be the easiest spot to find free Wi-Fi and browse the Web as long as you like.
The restaurant chain is lifting a $2.95 fee for two hours of wireless Internet access starting in mid-January, according to the Wall Street Journal and other reports.
McDonald's officials could not be reached immediately for comment.
The free Wi-Fi will reportedly be available at about 11,000 of 14,000 U.S. locations. McDonald's has used Wi-Fi provided by AT&T Inc. for several years, after first launching the service at 75 locations in San Francisco in 2003.
The free Wi-Fi will come with no time limits, all the better to encourage visitors to stay longer and buy McDonald's coffee drinks and hamburgers.
