T-Mobile, Starbucks, and AT&T settle Wi-Fi dispute
Less than a week after T-Mobile USA filed a rather lengthy lawsuit against Starbucks regarding their recently announced Wi-Fi deal with AT&T, the three parties involved have come to a resolution.
T-Mobile used to be the exclusive Wi-Fi access provider of Starbucks, but just recently, AT&T was brought into the picture to provide two hours of free Wi-Fi access to customers.
It’s not clear what T-Mobile, AT&T, and Starbucks have agreed upon exactly, but Starbucks spokeswoman Stacey Krum’s statement brings light to the matter:
“T-Mobile, AT&T and Starbucks have entered into a memorandum of understanding to resolve their disputes and are committed to providing a high quality WiFi experience for customers, including Starbucks Rewards Customers, at Starbucks locations nationwide.”
In any case, the matter seems to have been settled already, which is good news for all parties involved, and most especially the eager customers who are looking forward to their two hours of free Wi-Fi access everyday.
