Starbucks has granted Brits free Wi-Fi access.

Tweeted the coffee giant today: "All our customers can access Free Wi-Fi at hundreds of Starbucks locations throughout the UK. Just click 'Connect' and enjoy!"

Starbucks free Wi-Fi UK

Well, not quite all of the beverage purveyor's punters: the company was later forced to admit that the deal doesn't extend to its branches within Britain's airports.

These sites' hotspots, it said, are maintained by different providers. The free locations are connected through BT Openzone.

But Starbucks promised it is "working on this" to get free Wi-Fi there too. ®
