Taking advantage of free WiFi at coffee shops

Thousands of coffee shops offer free WiFi service, which allows data to be transmitted via a wireless network. Business people are taking advantage of them.

It’s a definite trend, according to consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. John Challenger, the firm’s CEO, say he occasionally works out of Chicago coffee shops.

While connecting at coffee shops isn’t appropriate for all workers, connecting there can save time and auto expense. If you look into a city coffee shop, you will probably see users ranging from sales people to pharmaceutical representatives. They work from laptops but also meet with clients and hold meetings.
