Starbucks has agreed a deal with BT Openzone to replace T-Mobile as the provider of WiFi in Starbucks coffee shops across the UK. BT have signed up for 5 years and they have already started installing the service in Starbucks stores with the rollout complete by the end of the summer.
The great news for O2 customers is that BT Openzone partners with O2 to provide WiFi access to its customers and you’ll soon be able to get WiFi access on your iPhone in every Starbucks in the UK! On top of this O2′s mobile broadband customers will get access to BT Openzone WiFi from the summer. Those of us with O2 mobile broadband will be able to browse ebay, watch iPlayer or check our emails whilst sipping a vanilla latte and chewing on an outrageously big muffin.
