The switch has been thrown today turning on free, unlimited Wi-Fi in more than 1,000 McDonald’s Restaurants across Canada to encourage a better experience for all of McDonald’s’ customers.
The Wi-Fi hotspots have been put into place and is being operated by Bell who are also one of Canada’s largest retail hotspot provider. The move also makes McDonald’s one of Canada’s largest free Wi-Fi providers.
Although the initial number of locations enabled with free Wi-Fi doesn’t cover all of McDonald’s’ more than 1,400 Canadian locations the plan is to have more than 90% of their restaurants nationwide enhanced with fully operational and free Wi-Fi by the end of the month.
No purchase will be required to use the service. For added convenience, the new and unlimited Wi-Fi service features a one-click entry point that doesn’t require a username or password. I wonder if the Wi-Fi will extend out to the drive through lineup which can get pretty long in some locations.
The company also updated their Restaurant Finder on their website to include the option to search for locations with the free McDonald’s Wi-Fi (see below for the link).
