Coffee giant Starbucks is moving from T-Mobile to AT&T for its Wi-Fi provider. And just like that, T-Mobile loses 7,000 HotSpots. In a deal that dates back to 2002, Starbucks was originally lined up with MobileStar and then T-Mobile. The switch is expected to happen in the second quarter of this year. So what happens to all of the current T-Mobile customers who already had an account set up? Good news! According to Starbucks, they get to keep their accounts.
“In recognition of the many T-Mobile customers who enjoy visiting Starbucks, the Company is also announcing that T-Mobile HotSpot customers will be able to continue to access Wi-Fi services at no additional cost, through an agreement between AT&T and T-Mobile.”
