US McDonald’s Wi-Fi Going Free In January

Knowzy writes “After five years behind a paywall, McDonalds plans to stop charging for its Wi-Fi in mid-January in the US. According to the Dallas Morning News, you aren’t even required to make a purchase — ‘free is free,’ a spokesman said. It’s also been widely reported that they won’t impose time limits on your surfing. With around 20,000 free hotspots between McDonald’s and Starbucks (who went free[ish] earlier this year), anyone still charging for Wi-Fi is going to look foolish, if not downright greedy.”
