Soon you’ll be getting at least a couple of hours of free internet access coming to you at Birmingham area Starbucks. The Seattle-based coffee company announced today that it will soon end its long term partnership with T-Mobile, instead working with AT&T to offer their customers up to two hours of free wireless access at all of their more than 100,000 locations for all AT&T customers and Starbucks Card holders before charging $3.99 for two additional hours of service.

The news expands the nation’s largest wireless network, and expands the options available to local web workers. The changeover is expected to begin this spring and be completed by the end of the year. While it is good news, we need to remember those businesses that already offer this valuable service in town, including Java and Jams, Urban Standard, O’Henry’s, Crestwood Coffee Company and Lucy’s.
