(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – If you’re like me, you probably enjoy taking your laptop to a coffee shop every once in a while. And if you do, you probably also prefer the WiFi connection speeds to be fast (who doesn’t right?). Well, there’s now even better news on that front.
Google on Wednesday announced that it was teaming up with coffee giant Starbucks to provide faster Wi-Fi connections. The roll out will occur over the upcoming 18 months and will affect all 7 thousand Starbucks locations in the United States.
“When your local Starbucks WiFi network goes Google, you’ll be able to surf the web at speeds up to 10x faster than before. If you’re in a Google Fiber city, we’re hoping to get you a connection that’s up to 100x faster,” explained the tech giant via a blog post.
Currently, Google offers its high speed internet service known as “Google Fiber” in the U.S. location of Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri. Meanwhile, soon-to-be expansions include the likes of Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah.
