Surf as you slurp at McDonald's
WiFi is in some cafes and hotels already
Laptop-owning burger fans will soon be able to surf the net while eating their Big Mac and large fries.

BT has said it is to install high-speed wireless, or WiFi, internet access at McDonald's outlets across the UK.

The move will allow McDonald's customers with WiFi-enabled laptops to remotely access the internet from within its restaurants.

WiFi is available in a growing number of hotels and airports, branches of Costa Coffee, and on some trains.
