Google Wi-Fi replaces AT&T at Starbucks

Well, this surprises me. From now on, Google will be providing the Wi-Fi service at Starbucks cafes:

“Starbucks said that Google, in conjunction with Level 3 Communications, will now be providing Wi-Fi service in Starbucks’ U.S. locations that’s up to 10 times faster than the current service powered by AT&T . . .¬†Currently, Starbucks stores are connected with a T1 line for 1.5 megabit speeds. Level 3 and Google will upgrade the system in every location to provide approximately 10 times faster speeds, though the actual result will vary from store to store.”

Google has been rolling out Wi-Fi networks in several US cities, most recently in San Francisco’s parks (a donation of $600,000).
