O2 has agreed a five-year deal to provide the free WiFi service to McDonald’s UK restaurants. All 1,200 McDonald’s restaurants will be switching from The Cloud to O2 WiFi this summer.
Gavin Franks, MD of O2 Wifi, said “A year ago we set out our ambition to transform public wifi in the UK by offering a fast and reliable public wifi connection that is genuinely free for all, no matter which mobile or broadband provider they are with. This announcement builds on the significant partnerships already secured by O2 Wifi in the past 12 months, enabling millions of people the length and breadth of the UK to access the internet for free whilst on the move.”
Recent research has shown that 750,000 people log on to the internet in a McDonald’s restaurant each month.
Other businesses using O2 WiFi include the Mitchells & Butlers pub and restaurant chain, House of Fraser, Tragus restaurants, Westminster Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
