T-Mobile and Starbucks have declared today "Wi-Fi Friday".

All Starbucks customers in 496 UK stores will be given free access to T-Mobile WiFi HotSpots, allowing them to access broadband internet - for surfing, emailing, downloading or instant messaging - whilst inside the store.

Wi-Fi Friday is an opportunity for all Starbucks customers to try out T-Mobile HotSpots for themselves and see just how easy the service is to use.

Brian Waring, marketing director at Starbucks Coffee Company comments: "Starbucks is committed to providing great coffee in a relaxing environment".

"We are always looking at ways we can improve the Starbucks Experience for our customers."

"'Wi-Fi Friday' is a great opportunity for our customers to sample our WiFi HotSpots facility on us while enjoying their favourite beverage."
