Starbucks Following Me

… to AT&T that is. One of the big reasons I stuck with T-Mobile for so long (until last month) was the discounted pricing on the T-Mobile Hotspots, when combined with an unlimited data plan.

Well, it looks like Starbucks couldn’t live without me, because now they’re switching to AT&T too. This is pretty big news, since I’m pretty sure Starbucks has the largest network of retail locations offering wifi. It’s great being able to get internet access virtually anywhere you might go, usually fairly conveniently.

The pricing model is surprisingly better than T-Mobile’s was too; it looks like there are several avenues for getting free service in some cases, and more to be revealed regarding pricing for AT&T wireless customers. I say this is surprising since AT&T wireless’ data plans are quite a bit more expensive (and restrictive) than T-mobile’s are.

Anyway, it will be interesting to watch this unfold as they roll it out.

    Do you do work at Starbucks? If you can you must be able to focus pretty well.

    I do every now and then, but I don’t find it distracting at all.

    Starbucks is too much for me to work at- customers, music, the conversations.
