Do you want WiFi with that?
The Guardian reports: [edited]
The fast food chain McDonald's is to introduce free high speed wireless internet access at most of its 1,200 restaurants by the end of the year in a move which will make it the UK's biggest provider of such a service. It has already introduced the free scheme in 8,000 of its 13,000 outlets in the US.
Faced with the prospect of young people spending hours surfing the net after buying just a single cup of coffee, a spokesman for McDonald's said: "We would be comfortable with that. There will be no restrictions."
The service is expected to be available at all UK outlets by the end of 2007
