Bell to launch free Wi-Fi hotspots in 90 percent of Tim Hortons by September
Fast food restaurant Tim Hortons and Bell on Thursday announced they have began rolling out free Wi-Fi access at Tim Hortons locations throughout Canada. By September, the two hope to offer such access to 90 percent of the locations, or more than 2,000 locations. The announcement comes after six months of testing of the hotspots using the services of various providers.
Known for its coffees, Tim Hortons hopes to make the stay of their guests more convenient and easier. Supported devices include Wi-Fi-equipped smartphones, notebooks, and tablets.
Bell operates Canada's largest Wi-Fi network. The two companies are signature Canadian brands.
