SEATTLE — Starbucks has partnered with Google to provide its customers with faster network and Wi-Fi speed at its U.S. stores.
“Our customers rely on the free Wi-Fi at Starbucks to study, work, connect with friends or just relax. We want to make sure they can access the web effortlessly and quickly, no matter what they’re doing or what device they are using,” said Adam Brotman, chief digital officer, Starbucks.
“Our goal is to continue to provide our customers with the best in-store experience possible, and we are excited to offer these kinds of unparalleled experiences at a broad scale.”
The company is planning on converting more than 7,000 of its U.S. company-operated locations to the upgraded store network and Wi-Fi experience. The new network is said to be 10 times faster.
