McDonalds Free WiFi Now Live in Most Locations

Engadget reports that McDonalds has fired up their free WiFi network, dropping the $2.95 charge. So, along with Starbucks, where you can buy a Starbucks Gift card for $5.00, register it and never use it, so you can get free access as speeds that are glacier like over AT&T's anemic DSL network, you can now sit and work in a dining establishment where kids run around like banshees and their parents don't mind them.

Not for me. While I'm fine with the loud lounge music at Starbucks and the sultry sounds of a coffee grinder, I'll pass on the aromatic scent of vegetable oil being heated to a crisp and opt for my WiFi elsewhere.

Yes, we do. But not as many as the regular McDonalds and the ones geared for toddlers to play in.

I think the WiFi aspect of McDonalds is to lure in a more adult crowd in off hours (non rush hours) as well as a lunch time crowd that needs to work.

I've used WiFi at their Paris, France locations and others in France, but my experience in the USA was limited mostly to one in Philadelphia when I was visiting my late mother as it was close to her home.

I think a taste test is in order!
