McDonalds To Be Wired With Free Internet In 2010!

| Filed under: Business Blitz

Here's a gimmick we can get behind!

Starting in January, McDonalds will be offering free, unlimited wireless internet access to their "dining room" customers!

The mega-chain has offered wireless access in their restaurants for five years now, but for the price of $2.95 every two hours.

"We're not just about hamburgers," chief information officer for McDonalds, Dave Grooms said. "We are about convenience and all kinds of value."

Will U dine-in more at McD's with the free wireless access??

    most of the mcD's in sydney offer free wi-fi, and have been for awhile.

    thought they were taking after usa.

    Some of them have already offered free internet for a while, though they are VERY strict about the dining room only policy! I popped in the drive-thru and bought some food and drinks, parked in the parking lot and connected to check my e-mail. Within three minutes I was disconnected and unable to reconnect. I was later told that the wireless is only for dine-in customers … who cares, I spent the money! I could have easily gone inside and ordered a cup of coffee and then used the wireless!

    In Europe many MacDO are offering free wireless since years, but perhaps american and europe habits are differents : Here we can't stay in a restaurant without continuing to consume, so nobody stay two hours in a macdo. (sorry for the mistakes I'm french)

    McDonalds is disgusting. When I see those greedy, obese idiots on line there, it makes me cringe. Anyone who has a brain and cares about their health wouldn't set foot in ANY fast food chain. On an ethical standpoint too, McDonalds treats their workers and animals like crap. Plus, their meat is filled with antibiotics and growth hormones. People who eat there must be on crack or just plain stupid. Watch FOOD, Inc. Excellent movie with a strong message.



  22. 22

    If you like to eat fast, cheap disgusting food that will clog your arteries & make you fat, then great.
