Starbucks Free Wi-Fi Starts Today

6 Comments 03 June 2008


wirelessuser Starbucks Free Wi Fi Starts Today Rumor has it, that Starbucks free Wi-Fi will start today in most US Starbucks stores. According to The Zatz Not Funny Blog, Dave has seen the corporate memo dictating a June 3 launch……

“Earlier today the manager approached me (unsolicited) and said the system was configured a few days ago and they’ve confirmed it works. I saw the back of the store memo and the manager says they’ve got signage behind the counter ready to go in conjunction with the June 3rd launch..”

This is very exciting for me. I have been asking at several of my local Starbucks when they were expecting their free Wi-Fi service to start and no one seemed to really know. Evidently, patrons will need to buy a Starbucks Card and use it at least once a month to receive two consecutive hours per day of blissful, Chai lovin’, internet access. Sign me up!

    I’m glad this materialized. I pre-loaded a *bux card over a month ago and have been trying to access the free wi-fi features, without knowing there was a future roll-out date. I had come to the conclusion that it wasn’t going to happen. Thanks for pointing this out!

    Joe~ Thanks for stopping by and let me know how it goes and if you get to use that “bux” card today. Now that the kids are out of school….chances are I will not get to use this much awaited service for a while, but there’s always time for a Chai. :)

    Boy am I behind the times, I thought they had it forever. perhaps its because I refuse to patron SB lol, but if someone could chat up Dunkin Donuts about it, I’m in!

  4. Can anyone say about freaking time? :)

    There are several larger coffee shop chains near me as well as independents. Know what they all have in common? Free wifi.

    Seriously, what was Starbucks ever thinking? Entire cities have free wifi hotspots and Starbucks has to make a quick buck?

    :)

    Wost product rollout/integration management in the history of Starbucks. The fun is just beginning, too. Starbucks needs a management shakeout for sure.

  6. Bad news for Panera, which I pick over Starbucks every time for the free WIFI.
