B&N Upgrades to Free Wi-Fi

Barnes & Noble announced today that it will offer wireless internet access to all customers who enter its 777 stores in 50 states via the AT&T network, to enhance access to its new e-bookstore and free e-book applications. Paid internet service has been available at B&N stores since 2005.

Library systems are also expanding their study areas with internet access, to accommodate an influx of job-seekers, freelancers and others seeking the free service. The New York Public Library, for example, recently added a second large room with wireless access, and 46 new laptops for patrons.
