AT&T announced to bring its high-speed Fiber Internet to over 750 McDonald’s restaurants across the United States in the coming years. McDonald’s wants to leverage the improved connectivity to explore the potential of advancing technologies like edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).
For many customers, a visit to their local McDonald’s means more than enjoying a great meal. Many bring their mobile devices and connect via Wi-Fi to catch up on the latest hit TV show, do their homework or connect with family on a video chat. The speed and reliability of AT&T Business Fiber will enhance these experiences for more restaurant guests.
AT&T Business Fiber helps businesses sell more goods, reach more audiences, and work faster and smarter. Services provided over fiber can transmit more information faster than cable for conferencing, file transfers, and cloud applications with equivalent download and upload speeds.
In 5 years, the restaurant experience could be very different than what it is today. High-speed internet is a critical engine for growth and expansion, creativity and innovation, and a reimagined consumer experience in the industry. We’re thrilled to work together with McDonald’s to help shape the future of restaurants.Michael Colaneri, Vice President, Retail Enterprise Solutions, AT&T Business
Our goal is to provide our customers the best experience possible, and we are excited to offer high speed internet on a broader scale. Every day, our customers rely on McDonald’s free Wi-Fi to work, study, connect with loved ones or simply relax. They’re able to access the internet on laptops or mobile devices at more than 11,500 participating restaurants with Wi-Fi, always free of charge. Fiber-optics are essential to delivering a seamless experience. This agreement with AT&T helps to ensure our customers can access the internet effortlessly and quickly.Whitney McGinnis, CIO and Vice President, McDonald’s USA
Now more than ever, our McDonald’s restaurants have become the hub for family, friends, school, and work.
