Starbucks to Bolster Speeds of In-Store Wi-Fi

Chris Patte, writing for the company’s Ideas In Action blog:

We’re proud to announce we’ve partnered with Google to provide faster WiFi services. We’ve already started rolling out the new WiFi and expect the faster service to be in all U.S. company-owned stores in the coming year.

As someone who works a lot from Starbucks, I think this is great news. My neighborhood store’s network has a tendency to be awfully pokey, especially on days where it’s really busy. It’s times like this when I’m glad I paid the extra money for a cellular-capable iPad.
