AT&T At Some New Starbucks & Giving Some Free Access

AT&T wireless access at Starbucks

The switchover from T-Mobile to AT&T as the provider of wireless networks at Starbucks in the US seems to have started.  According to Ars Technica writer David Chartier, at his personal blog site:

  • All WiFi users get 2 free hours of access per day
  • AT&T has an iPhone-specific portal to sign onto the service
  • Via the portal, you can also use coupons and prepaid cards to purchase more access time

From various reports around the web the last couple of days, it sounds like maybe most new build Starbucks sites in the US are getting AT&T wireless service right from the off, and the service is getting a staged rollout to existing shops.  A local Starbucks manager told Chartier that all the stores in the US should be done by summer.

Any amount of free access sounds good, and two hours worth sounds real good to me.  I’m hoping to see this at a new Starbucks that’s just fnishing construction a couple miles from me soon.
