The mobile phone provider O2 have struck a deal with the high street coffee chain Costa to provide its customers with free wireless broadband. This will mean that all Costa Coffee customers will be able to surf the net while drinking their Latte, regardless of which mobile provider they are currently using. All the customer has to do, is sign up in store or at an O2 hotspot to enjoy this free service.
According to the O2 press release;
O2 today announces that it has agreed a partnership to provide Costa, the UK’s largest coffee shop chain, with its market-changing wifi service. This partnership will see the coffee chain’s 14 million monthly customers provided with free, fast, reliable and easy to use wifi. The deployment has started in London this month to make sure stores are set up for festivities planned this summer across the capital. The roll out through 2012 will ensure many of the 700 cups of coffee served every minute across the UK will be accompanied by O2 Wifi.
