Starting in August, new U.S. company-operated Starbucks stores will begin to receive dramatically faster network and Wi-Fi speeds. And over the next 18 months, Starbucks will convert more than 7,000 U.S. stores to the upgraded service, according to the Associated Press.
Starbucks says the improvements will help ensure that its customers can easily access the internet.
Seattle-based Starbucks Corp. and Mountain View, Calif.-based Google Inc. also plan to work together to co-develop the next generation of Starbucks’ digital network.
Level 3 Communications, a telecommunications company, will upgrade existing Wi-Fi devices and manage connectivity in the Starbucks stores.
