Freelance writers, PR pros or anyone else jonesing for a wi-fi hot spot can take some solace in the fact that Starbucks has ended its relationship with T-Mobile and moved to AT&T, at the same time lowering the price for internet access at its 7,000 locations.
According to Mobile Content Today:
Starting sometime this spring, folks with a Starbucks Card can use the Wi-Fi service free for two hours a day and AT&T U-verse and broadband customers will get unlimited free access, according to a report on mocoNews.net.
Everyone else will get to choose from two price plans – $3.99 for two hours of access or $19.99 for a monthly subscription. The monthly plan gets you access to all 70,000 AT&T hotspots worldwide.
It’s still not completely free, but definitely a step in the right direction. Read the AT&T press release here.
