McDonald's big wi-fi roll out in U.S.
Posted on 13-Aug-2003 20:17. | Tags Filed under: News.



McDonald's announced the launch of high-speed wireless Internet access for customers in an anticipated 100 restaurants throughout the Chicagoland and Milwaukee areas, with more than 60 of those restaurants offering wireless services immediately. Additional locations will be completed by the end of September.

McDonald's is the first quick service restaurant to offer customers high-speed wireless access in three major markets - Chicago, New York and the San Francisco Bay area. In Chicago, McDonald's is working with Toshiba's Computer Systems Group and Intel Corporation to provide the service.

The restaurants chosen for the Chicago pilot program are in a variety of different communities, including 12 locations in Chicago, 44 locations in Chicago suburbs, plus 5 Milwaukee area locations.

"This is a high-tech blend of innovation and convenience that will tell our customers McDonald's is going to be a part of their world," said Phil Gray, McDonald's central division vice president. "We are literally connecting to the relevancy and immediacy of today's busy American way of life."
