PC Mag: In January of 2010, the 11,000 McDonald's restaurants in the United States and some in Canada with Wi-Fi service (another 3,000 locations don't have it) will stop charging customers to get access to the Internet using wireless devices. What used to cost $2.95 for two hours will now come free.
McDonald's is joining chains like Barnes & Noble and Borders which have café's that used to charge for Wi-Fi and now don't. McDonald's will quickly become the largest provider of free Wi-Fi in the world. Starbucks does it as well, but only for a couple hours at a time.
