Called 'Mc-Do' in Paris, I have to admit that I am not really a frequent customer and so I've never considered using their free Wi-Fi so far. However, last week I had a bit of time so I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't know what to expect so I didn't really expect much. The more was I surprised that access is granted without any kind of verification if you bought something or not, e.g. via a code on the receipt. The positive surprise didn't stop there as I got a downlink throughput of 5 MBit/s and even my PPTP VPN client could connect to my home network and ensured an encrypted connection via the unsecured hotspot. And I was not the only customer with a notebook / netbook in the restaurant I might add. By the way, the others had some food and drink on their table as well so it wasn't a free lunch, eh, Wi-Fi.
