In a move that is sure to increase the number of laptops you can expect to see in your local cafe, O2 has announced an agreement to provide Costa, the UK coffee shop chain, with free WiFi.
The deployment has started in London to set up the service ahead of this summer’s Olympics and Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.
O2′s wifi service is free for anyone, no matter which mobile or broadband provider they are with. It’s a sign up service where users need to register and then can use the signal in any Costa shop or any of O2′s WiFi hotspots.
>What’s not to like? Let’s hope the initiative is permanent and not just for the Olympics.<
