A lot of people spend a good amount of their day in coffee shops such as Starbucks to enjoy a nice cup of Joe and free WiFi. However, the speeds are usually not anything to brag about. Well Google just announced a partnership with Starbucks in that they are going to speed that internet up a tad for 7.000 stores in the U.S. We are talking 10x faster speeds than what’s available now. In fact, they are hoping to make it 100x faster for those stores in Google Fiber cities.
There is only one catch and that is that it will take about 18 months to hit all the stores. Depending on where you live, you might be waiting for a bit.
Google and Starbucks seem to have a pretty nice partnership. Last month, they announced that customers who are connected to Starbucks WiFi can enjoy Google’s Play Music All Access for free, which is a very nice perk.
