Google To Bring Faster Wi-Fi to Starbucks

If your office headquarters are at Starbucks, your internet service is about to get a free refill.

Starbucks has partnered with Google to upgrade its Wi-Fi connection, as well as the Starbucks Digital Network homepage, in 7,000 Starbucks locations across the United States.

Google won the partnership with the Seattle-based company by offering a connection speed that’s up to 10 times faster than the one provided by AT&T, which currently supplies the coffee chain with free wi-fi, according to CNET.

Starbucks and Google will upgrade the busiest locations starting in August and will roll the changes out to the rest of the chain over the next 18 months.
