Great news, everyone! Starbucks announced recently that its vast network of Wifi is going totally gratis on July 1. (Well, itâ€™s vast in that there seems to be more Starbucks than iPhone users in this country.)
AND it gets even better. This isnâ€™t just piddly, weak little, bandwidth-throttled Wifi â€”Â all these new FaceTime users coming up will likely be able to hop online and vid chat. According to Starbucks CIO Stephen Gillet, A/V conferencing functionality already works with the likes of Skype right now.
This is good â€” no GREAT â€” news for soon-to-be new iPhone 4 users. I just hope the internet connections at Starbucksâ€™ locations can take the abundant traffic that will likely arrive without â€œpulling an AT&Tâ€ and clogging up the works. Considering this service is powered by the carrier, weâ€™ll have to see.
