The UK is gearing up for the 2012 summer Olympics, and as an added bonus, everyone in the UK will enjoy free Wi-Fi in all Costa coffee shops in the country. This comes from a deal between O2 and Costa, which will provide 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi connection on any device, no matter what the customer’s mobile or broadband provider is.
The deployment of the free Wi-Fi service will start in London this month, and will spread across the country throughout 2012. In order to enjoy the free Wi-Fi, all you have to do is enter one of the Costa coffee chain shops or find another O2 Wi-Fi hotspot, sign-up to the service once and use the connection. According to O2, there are many O2 hotspots in numerous public locations, and these too will offer free Wi-Fi across the country.
But it’s not over with just 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi time. If you’re a Costa Coffee Club member, you can enjoy unlimited free Wi-Fi with no restrictions. While drinking a cup of coffee usually doesn’t take more than 30 minutes, unlimited minutes can sure come in handy. Joining the Costa Coffee Club is also free, so if you’re planning on spending long hours working or resting in UK coffee shops, this could be an excellent deal.
