Starbucks Ditches T-Mobile for AT&T - And Offers Free Internet!


Exciting news for coffee and internet addicts like me: Starbucks has decided to ditch T-Mobile for AT&T and offer two free hours of usage a day (an extra two hours costs $3.99). Brilliant move for a few reasons:

* I always believed that it was in Starbucks benefit to keep customers in the store * This should increase sales of high priced, high margin foods (in addition to their coffees) * An AT&T deal makes a lot more sense considering Starbuck's ties with Apple and iTunes * The T-Mobile internet service package is lousy (slow, logs you out, never remember passwords, etc)

Now I just need Starbucks to offer those free-refills in cities outside of Seattle...
