WiFi comes to Second Cup in Canada

Second Cup is rolling out WiFi access in a number of its coffee houses. The initial rollout will see 50 locations get wireless access with another 70 locations scheduled for a month later. Rogers Wireless Inc. will be providing the necessary infrastructure.

Access will only be free until April. After that, Rogers Wireless customers will be billed 15 cents per minute (directly on their invoice). Other users will be able to buy prepaid time allotments at either $15 for 24 hours or $9 per hour.

For Second Cup, offering WiFi is becoming a necessity as it competes against Starbucks and other coffee chains where WiFi is now often bundled with your caffe latte.

The article also has a list of the locations where WiFi will be deployed.
