So McDonalds unveiled free WiFi in its stores and just recently Starbucks announced free WiFi coming July 1st. Today I read that Oklahoma City’sBricktown unveiled free wireless in common areas and some businesses.

I, for one, am more likely to visit a business that offers free wireless, as a recent McDonald’s stop on a vacation attests to. With the growing ubiquity of wireless devices and the relatively inexpensive costs of adding wireless, this seems like a no-brainer for businesses, and a win for the downtown Oklahoma City area.
