Tim Hortons To Offer Free Wi-Fi at 2000 Locations

Tim Hortons announced today that they will be installing wireless internet in 2000 of their locations. This will be the largest free wireless network in Canada.

Roland Walton, Chief Operations Officer of Tim Hortons said:

“It’s all about convenience and making life easier for our guests. Free wireless Internet at Tim Hortons will help people stay connected on the road in more locations than anyone in Canada and is yet another great reason to visit one of our restaurants to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee.”

The roll out has begun and by September the chain expects 90 percent of its locations will have wireless access. The Oakville, Ontario based company chose Bell as their service provider after a six month testing process.

Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility said:

“We’re proud of this partnership between two great Canadian brands and welcome Tim Hortons customers to the country’s largest Wi-Fi network. The expansion of Bell’s broadband Wi-Fi into more than 2,000 Tim Hortons locations underlines Bell’s ability to deliver world-leading technology on a national scale,”

Currently Bell also providesWi-Fi service to Chapters, Indigo, Starbucks and select McDonalds location. What are your thoughts on this initiative by Tim Hortons? Will it change your coffee habits?
