Several Shanghai McDonald’s have been offering wifi for a while now, and apparently the campaign was a success. The company is now taking it up a notch, and hundreds of Mickey D’s throughout China are going to roll out free internet to shake-slurpers and fry-fondlers alike, promoting greasy keyboards and smudged screens nationwide.
TheNextWeb reports that the fast-food internet will be, well, fast:
By next year, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants across China will have free Wi-Fi access. As of now, several McDonald’s restaurants in Shanghai already give their diners free Wi-Fi access with download speeds of up to 2.0 Mb/s.
According to Tech.Sina, the service will be brought to restaurants in Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Hainan, Shenzhen, Shanghai and “other parts of the country.”
Personally, this writer loves wifi, but also enjoys thinking of McDonald’s as a shit-hole full of dirty food and dirtier amenities. These worlds are colliding, and I’m not sure how to feel about it.
