BT has announced a deal to provide Wi-Fi across at 650 Starbucks coffeehouses in the UK and Ireland.
The deal builds on the increasing popularity of BT’s Wi-Fi service, and with coffee shops currently the third most popular venue for logging onto the Internet, the deal looks set to benefit both parties.
The new Wi-Fi service will be installed this week and will be rolled out by the end of the summer.
It will be available to 4.6 million BT broadband customers, BT Openzone users, O2 iPhone users, and customers from iPass, Boingo and other BT Openzone roaming partners.
The network will be used by Starbucks to support public customer hotspots and store operations systems.
