Free wi-fi coming to a McDonald's near you... again

McDonald's is going to slash their usage charges for wi-fi access to the low, low price of absolutely free. McDonald's restaurants currently charge $2.95 for two hours of wireless Internet access, fries, and a coke (fries and coke not included).

What's interesting about this news is that McDonald's had offered free wi-fi in the past, back in 2008 to be more specific. It was only after they saw how much people "abused" it by hanging out and not buying anything that they decided to start charging for access.

Besides wifi those mcdonalds restaurants need to fix their building and have outlets so people with laptops could properly use it. But then again it's mcdonalds and who would want to stay there for too long just to get robbed when they go outside. Yep, it happens where i live.

Really? I never new mcdonald's had wi-fi at all. I guess I'd pay more attention to those things if I had a laptop.

Did you like pay for the password to the network and they changed it every 2 hours? Otherwise, how would they charge you for it?

You can't access the web without going through their authentication gateway. Their router just keeps sending you to the login page if your machine hasn't registered and logged in.

It's a system much like you see in hotels where you have to enter the room number and password to gain access.

Have any of you tried the new Angus burgers at McDonald's?
They are a step above their regular burgers.
