McDonald's has announced plans to offer free wireless Internet access across its 1,200-strong restaurants in the UK. The move will make the fast food chain have the country's biggest provider of free wireless broadband access: it will account for about 10% of the total Wi-Fi hotspots.

There seems to be a major increase in competition for the UK's broadband market that is dominated by contract or pay-as-you-go services, where a regular hotspot user usually has to pay around 5 pounds ($10.18 ) for an hour log-on. There are around 11,477 Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK and major service providers include The Cloud, BT, and Deutsche Telecom's T-Mobile.
