McDonald's to Offer Free WiFi at 11,000 Locations

McDonald's will soon offer free wireless Internet at around 11,000 of its domestic locations, reports the WSJ.

The company is hoping to transform itself from an in and out fast food location into a hang out destination.

Thanks to a partnership with AT&T, McDonald's will drop the $2.95 fee that it had charged customers for two hours of WiFi, McDonald's USA Chief Information Officer David Grooms said in an interview.

The fast food chain hopes this will keep customers around longer and perhaps cause them to buy some of the McCafe line of coffee drinks while surfing the net.

McDonald's also has plans to begin selling items like frappes and smoothies by mid-2010.

McDonald's already offers Free Wireless Internet at most locations in Canada. You just need to call a 1-800-Number to get a login name and password, or you can try asking for one from a cashier. Some locations don't even know why offer it so try the 1-800-Number if the cashier doesn't know. (It might even work in the states..) Hidden SSID: MCD Password: Unsecured.... McDonald's will be making allot of changes to their menu in 2010. You can expect to see some old items make a comeback, as well as plenty of new, and international items as well. Though smaller locations will obviously not have the McCafe. One such new Item is the CHICKEN PARMESAN SNACK WRAP and the MAC WRAP will NO longer contain Natural Shredded cheese, but instead, 1/2 of a Processed Cheese slice.
