Google has today announced that it will be providing Wi-Fi at all 7,000 Starbucks locations in the US. Google will be providing a much better Wi-Fi connectivity at Starbucks with speeds upto 10x than the current one and in places where Google Fiber is working, the speed will be 100x.
Coffee shop + Internet—it’s a pairing that many us have come to rely on. WiFi access makes work time, downtime, travel time and lots of in-between times more enjoyable and productive. That’s why we’re teaming up with Starbucks to bring faster, free WiFi connections to all 7,000 company-operated Starbucks stores in the United States over the next 18 months. When your local Starbucks WiFi network goes Google, you’ll be able to surf the web at speeds up to 10x faster than before. If you’re in a Google Fiber city, we’re hoping to get you a connection that’s up to 100x faster.
Free Wi-Fi at Starbucks is definitely a major factor why people go into the store and with Google providing network speeds at 10x or even 100x, Starbucks customers are sure going to be proud.
