Google To Cover WiFi At 7,000 Starbucks Locations In The U.S.
Google is partnering with Starbucks to offer free and unlimited music through the new Google Play All Access streaming service. Google will soon be supplying WiFi to all Starbucks locations in the U.S. This includes its new gigabit Google Fiber Internet service where available.
“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,” stated Google in a blog post.
Most recently, AT&T has been covering free Starbucks WiFi. Google will start rolling out its new Starbucks networks in the next month and will have all 7,000 U.S. locations running within the next 18 months. You will know that it is ready when you log in to the Google Starbucks SSID.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
