Starbucks to offer free Wi-Fi in the UK

Don’t know the difference between a Venti and a Tall? Now you can look it up for free before ordering

Coffee aficionados will rejoice at the news that Starbucks is now offering free Wi-Fi to all customers via BT’s Openzone service.

Although each session will need to be renewed after two hours, that should be more than enough time to work on your groundbreaking novel while nursing your complicated caffeinated concoction.

We’ll be heading down to Starbucks later on to order a large hot chocolate and to test the service out for ourselves – purely for research purposes of course.

Update: Wi-Fi will be free for all Starbucks customers, not just those with loyalty cards as was the case previously.
