business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that McDonald’s plans to expand the number of restaurants in which it offers Wi-Fi service (wireless Internet access that costs about $2.95 for two hours) to “thousands” of restaurants within the next year.

McDonald's has been testing Wi-Fi in roughly 300 of its 13,000 restaurants.
KC's View:
We think that any business that wants to attract customers for any period of time ought to have Wi-Fi access. We’re starting to get to the point that we’re choosing where to go for coffee based on Wi-Fi availability…it’s all part of staying connected.
