Last February, Starbucks announced a partnership with AT&T to provide free wi-fi access in its stores to Starbucks Card holders. The new policy allowed “members” two hours of access each day.

Over the summer, the fall, and as recently as this past weekend, I’ve taken a seat in a few Starbucks, signed into the wireless access, and got myself a coffee or a latte. Usually, a couple hours later, my drink all gone, I am still connected.

So, while I’m not sure that the policy is a complete sham, I can say that I have not once had my access turned off in the middle of my time at Starbucks, even when passing the two hour limit.

Just thought I’d share.
