Free Wi-Fi at Starbucks for AT&T DSL customers starts May 1

AT&T DSL customers can soon head over to their nearest Starbucks and enjoy free Wi-Fi soon. Come May 1, AT&T will begin offering the service to DSL customers who take 1.5 megabits per second or faster service.

You’ll just log on with your AT&T Yahoo DSL sign in and then you’ll get free service at more than 7,000 Starbucks locations. The service is will be using the old T-Mobile equipment until AT&T gradually upgrades to new routers over the course of this year. Then branding will be completely AT&T.

AT&T is also planning on cutting the price of hotspot service for non-AT&T users. For two hours, users will pay $3.99. Monthly membership will be sold for $19.99, and will include access to AT&T’s 70,000 hotspots around the world. Previously, T-Mobile was charging $6 per hour, $9.99 for a day pass, or $39.99 a month for unlimited access.

There may be other ways to get cheap Wi-Fi at Starbucks though its not clear when they will kick in. Starbucks customers who buy a prepaid Starbucks card will receive two hours of free service. The card, which can be purchased for $5 or more, must be activated and have a balance to receive free Wi-Fi service.

A good friend of ours, Mike Saccomano, has been very helpful to us with website & webmaster advice. We get together a couple of times a year to discuss what’s new in the world of the internet and he always has great advice for how I can improve RVbasics.com.

As well as being an avid RVer & camper he also runs a successful website called AwesomeTools.com. I think its a great site with some interesting products you won’t necessarily find at Home Depot.

Mike has a webpage on AwesomeTools.com with products he feels may be of interest to campers and RVers so we said we’d help spread the word. Its the least we can do for all the help he has given me.

I think the Grizzly Spit Portable Campfire Rotisserie System is kinda neat. And, if you use 5# propane cylinders check out the Grill Gauge.

Mike says he uses one on his camping trips and it really works. So, if you have a few minutes and an internet connection, please check out Mike’s Awesome Tools website.
