FedEx Office announced the introduction of free, unlimited Wi-Fi access at most of its U.S. locations. Customers now can find the free Wi-Fi service provided through AT&T at more than 1,000 FedEx Office Print & Ship Center locations throughout the United States. The remaining rollout of the company’s free Wi-Fi service is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. Provided courtesy of FedEx Office, this new offering is intended to help busy professionals connect to the Internet from a location that is conducive to working on the go and offers convenient access to business support services.
According to a March 2010 survey conducted by AT&T, nearly 8 in 10 small businesses (79 percent) report using Wi-Fi connectivity to conduct business-related activities. Another 68 percent say they use Wi-Fi-enabled hotspots more now to access data than they did two years ago.
“How and where people are working has evolved dramatically over the past several years thanks to technology innovations,” says Kim Dixon, executive vice president and chief operating officer of FedEx Office. “At FedEx Office, we continuously strive to enhance the customer experience in our stores. We are delivering on that commitment.”
