If you're like me, sitting inside McDonald's, happily enjoying my Happy Meal, but wishing that I'd have some free WiFi to go along with my fries, then you'll be happy at today's announcement.
McDonald's will be offering free WiFi starting in January at all of its U.S. locations that are outfitted for wireless internet access.
"We're not just about hamburgers," said Dave Grooms, chief information officer for McDonald's, according to the AP. "We are about convenience and all kinds of value."
"We want people to have a comfortable place to sit and check their e-mail and get on line," Grooms said. "We've become a destination for our beverages and our coffees, and Wi- Fi naturally fits with that."
McDonald's currently offers internet access through AT&T at 11,000 of its 14,000 U.S. locations at US$2.95 fee for two hours of service, according to Bloomberg.
