Starbucks New Zealand with wi-fi
Posted on 3-Sep-2003 21:05 | Filed under: News

According to New Zealand Herald, Starbucks coffee houses in Auckland and Christchurch now offer hotspots to its customers.

Still according to the paper, coffee drinkers can use wireless-enabled notebooks or handheld computers to access the internet at high speed using 802.11b or WiFi technology. Under the three-month trial New Zealand Starbucks is giving away five megabytes of bandwidth usage for every "grande" sized coffee or other beverage. This might allow, for example, the downloading of a hundred emails, or one or two MP3 songs.

Additional megabytes can also be purchased starting at $5 for 10MB using a credit card online.
