McDonald's goes eBay friendly

No primary category set

McdonaldsIt always annoys me when I stay in a hotel and then have to pay to access the Internet. It’s the same when I’m at an airport having paid for a flight, or in a coffee shop paying for a drink. It’s not just the paying but it’s not cheap at anything up to £7.50 per hour. Now an unlikely contender has just jumped to the top of my favoured eateries – McDonald’s!

Yes, the doyen of the fast food industry has promised by the end of the year WiFi access in most of its 1200 UK restaurants will be free to all. For an eBay seller who just can’t not check my emails, that’s music to my ears. What’s even better is you don’t *have* to eat their food. Faced with the prospect of young people spending hours surfing the net after buying just a single cup of coffee, a spokesman for McDonald’s said: “We would be comfortable with that. There will be no restrictions.” In the words of their own catch phrase “I’m lovin’ it”.
