Surprise of the day. In praise of Roadchef.

Filed under: Mobility — jamesone111 @ 3:49 pm

A few days ago I posted in praise of McDonalds for their free WiFi. So I shouldn’t have been surprised to stop at the motorway services and find Roadchef (at least at Norton Canes , off the M6 Toll) are doing the same. But in an otherwise predictable day, it was a surprise.

OK they did charge me £7.35 for a sandwich and a cup of coffee so one can argue they can afford it: still if places like this are giving free access (and to be fair , without requiring a purchase) it just adds to the pressure on places like hotels to stop stinging customers for access.
