I was walking past the McDonalds in Oxford Street, at the Oxford Circus, when I saw a ‘Free WiFi’ sticker. I’ve walked by a few other restaurants recently and been surprised by the amount of folk sat in there munching away on a Big Mac with their laptops out, browsing the web, clearly using BT Openzone or similar.
This has taken my by surprise. The last time I was in a McDonalds trying to get WiFi, it was paid-for and didn’t work (the joys of a Hartlepool existence). So things have moved on, big time. It’s an excellent move and something I’ll need to add to my consciousness whenever I want fast data.
Check out the McDonalds site for the restaurant locator:
