  • ATT Free WiFi at Starbucks is Live
    Back in February, we found out that ATT was teaming up with Starbucks to offer free WiFi and oust T-Mo from the current WiFi providing deals.

    Now, those portals are apparently live. David Chartier got some screenshots of the ATT iPhone portal in a Texas Starbucks. Users can now use a "membership" to get free access, or sign up for one-day/one-hour/etc for-pay passes as well.

    thanks, kevin, for second image

    He mentioned the Starbucks manager there thought the plan was to have all 7000 or so US Starbucks locations moved over to ATT WiFi by summer. Just in time for the Gphone.

    Starbucks says:

    • Complimentary Wi-Fi for Starbucks customers When you register your Starbucks Card and use it at least once a month, you'll receive two consecutive hours a day of complimentary Wi-Fi, courtesy of AT&T.
    • Complimentary Wi-Fi for AT&T DSL customers AT&Ts more than 12 million DSL customers already qualify for free Wi-Fi at their neighborhood Starbucks.
    • Competitive pricing for paid Wi-Fi All other customers can receive two consecutive hours of Wi-Fi access for $3.99.
    If you've got more info on the Starbucks rollout side, or a better screenshot of the ATT iPhone portal, let us know!

      Correct. I was pretty darn surprised to see that this was "front page" news. We've had this in Redlands, CA B&N for a long time now. Granted I don't use it since it cost, but I have seen the screen on my iPhone.

      That's not really an official Starbucks, it's what they call a licensed store. It's not part of the Starbucks company, but they sell Starbucks products. it's the same thing you see in Airports and convention centers. That's why the coffee at these stores is usually not as good, the baristas haven't been trained properly.

      Unfortunately my local Starbucks stand-alone store does not have the AT&T wi-fi yet. I was just there yesterday and still got the T-Mobile screen on both my laptop and iPhone. According to the website the roll out will/has begin in the spring and be finished by the end of '08
