..but I already pay for WIFI access..
I’m sitting at a Starbucks at Logan Airport and I’m not able to connect to the Internet. Normally I should be able to get on because I subscribe to the T-Mobile service that provides Internet access for coffee swilling patrons.
And coffee sipping patrons, like myself.
I can’t get on the Internet at Logan though.
Because Logan apparently has an exclusive contract with Boingo so this Starbucks isn’t allowed to provide the services they normally provide at every other location.
If Microsoft pulled this kind of nonsense, there’d be a Federal case about it.
Is it too much to ask to be allowed freedom of choice when it comes to accessing the Internet?
If memory serves, a T Mobile day pass is $9.99. Boingo is $7.95.
If I had freedom of choice here at Logan Airport, I’d probably choose Boingo over T Mobile, if I didn’t already have a monthly subscription.
At this point, I could be poisoned from digitalis slipped into my tall drip coffee and even if I could find out the antidote by logging onto Yahoo Answers, I would still not pay Boingo for a "day pass."
I only have an hour until my flight boards anyway.
Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be poisoned in this scenario…
Well, I watched Casino Royale last night and Bond used an auto defibrulator after administering the antidote…I see a defibrulator over by the restroom door…ok, now I need an antidote…
…sleep is what I need…
I’m going to sleep like a rock tonight.
