Default WiFi in Burger King?

I'm having lunch at a BK here in Wichita, KS. Just for kicks I
decided to bring my Thinkpad and check to see if there are any
hotspots nearby - there is one here in the restaurant!

Do most BK's have WiFi or am I just lucky?

Ken.

if they didn't advertise it you probably got the store's unsecured
network.

They offer wifi to make up for such bad food...

But seriously. I wouldn't know. Isn't there a website that shows you were
wifi locations are at in your area? We have them at Subway sandwich shops
around here. But I don't think Burger King offers them. It may just be up
the franchise owner on rather or not to offer wifi.

Wish we had a BK here - they closed it a couple of years ago.

Looks like the various Burger Thing franchisee's contract individually
for Wi-Fi service. For example, this one for Washington DC area:

No clue if there's anything similar for Kansas. The local (Santa Cruz
CA and Scotts Valley CA) Burger Things don't have Wi-Fi.

That sucks. Do you have a fish and chip shop?

I would imagine a few aare playing with it since McDonald's pretty much all
have it now. BK owners may be thinking McD's wifi is curbing their
business.

fundamentalism, fundamentally wrong.
