Caribou, Starbucks roll out free WiFi

Caribou Coffee Company Inc. will offer free wireless service, the company said Tuesday.

Caribou said the service will be available to customers in over 80 percent of its stores through a partnership with Atlanta-based Wandering WiFi, a wireless service provider.

Previously, Caribou Coffee had offered customers wireless Internet access under a “free-with-a-minimum-purchase” deal it began in 2006, but the company said it decided to offer the service completely free without any purchase.

Starbucks Corp. announced that it has rolled out a mostly free WiFi service plan of its own, through a deal with AT&T.

Now, Starbucks customers purchase a Starbucks gift card and register it online, after which they can get up to two hours of consecutive Internet access per day.

The card must be used at least once per month with a Starbucks purchase in order to keep it active.
