Borders Group recently signed a deal with Verizon Communications to provide free WiFi service in "virtually all" of its more than 500 stores around the country. Although this is GREAT news, I'm surprised Borders is only offering this service to shoppers now. Booksellers and coffee shops should all be wireless by now -- though, I think in this case, the key word here is "free" WiFi.
It's also smart the company is informing its online shoppers of this new service with a bold message on Borders.com. A good move for Borders all around.
