America runs on Dunkin’s Wi-Fi

Kai Ryssdal Oct 2, 2014

There’s been a study done by the mobile market research firm WeFi looking at wireless internet use at coffee shops across the country.

Starbucks, it turns out, has the fastest wireless connections.

But it’s customers at Dunkin’ Donuts, by a margin of two to one, who use the most data.

Also, on a separate but related note, there’s another study out there that says 40 percent of Americans would give up coffee over Wi-Fi.

Seriously?
