Business Advantages of Going Online - Access


Businesses that use the internet enlarge their customer base; approximately 5 billion people are not currently online, but they will become desirable customers in the near future as they gain access to the internet. AT&T and Starbucks are trying to increase the number of users currently not online and making it easier for customers with laptops to use the internet. AT&T now offers free Wi-Fi internet access to Starbucks locations which provides more than 7,000 coffee shops across the country. “AT&T now has more than 17,000 U.S. hot spots and more than 70,000 globally.” These services increase the access to the internet and are an advantage of going online. Also AT&T is making money on the deal, after 2 hours of free service two-hour blocks of wireless service will be sold at $3.99 or a monthly membership of $19.99 per month. Everyone benefits from the deal.
