Pretty much all of them:

"The internet service is currently available in 132 restaurants nationwide, with 145 of the nation?s 158 restaurants expected to be offering the service by the end of the year."

All up 145 by the end of the year. This does not include 9 Foodcourt restaurants and 4 airport stores due to rental agreements.

Find out if your restaurant has it by going to http://mcdonalds.co.nz/find-us/restaurant, tick the wifi box. If your restaurant is red, then you are good to go!!

NBR says not the airport and 9 foodcourt outlets... Cry 

Having seen the price that Auckland Airport want to charge for wifi access points in the past I can see why they aren't doing airports.....




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

They do this in Australia too. Not very fast, but free when I tried in Melbourne recently.

I had a go at the Botany Town Centre foodcourt over a week ago. You don't have to purchase anything to use it

Interestingly its in both the big Porirua store, and the North City Plaza according to the website. Wonder if there is a limit on connections to the Wifi? normally its what 16/32 users per AP?

Free WiFi in McD's Australia saved my live on more than one occasion when I first moved there!

Anyone know what vendor/provider is running all this?  I have a client who has very similar needs.
