Starbucks’ coffee drinks have become synonymous with the high costs consumers are cutting back on these days, but at least the Wi-Fi connections in its stores will no longer require a credit card. Starting July 1, Starbucks will let anyone connect to its Wi-Fi network for free. This fall, the company will add a content network called Starbucks Digital Network, in partnership with Yahoo and other sites, which will include local content you won’t be able to read anywhere else. Both offerings will be free.

Today is the first of July and that means that Starbucks’s no-charge, registration-less and limitation-free Wi-Fi initiative officially goes live at all U.S. and Canadian retail stores. Starbucks first revealed the news a little more than two weeks ago. CEO Howard Schultz also announced that the company is working on its own Starbucks Digital Network in partnership with Yahoo.
