T-Mobile sues Starbucks


As you probably already have heard, Starbucks is in the process of switching over from T-Mobile to AT&T hotspots for customers who want to surf the web at Wi-Fi speeds.

No surprise, T-Mobile isn’t so thrilled with this move and is suing Starbucks.

According to a story at Reuters the company “secretly colluded with AT&T to offer free WiFi Internet access in its cafes despite an exclusive agreement with T-Mobile.”

They argue that they were given exclusive right to “sell, market and promote its service” at Starbucks locations and that they have “made a very significant investment in the technology and equipment necessary to provide Wi-Fi service in the many thousands of Starbucks stores in the United States.”
