You might not spend as much time in a FedEx office as you might Starbucks, but if you do, the good news is that FedEx has announced that it’s offering free Wi-Fi access to around 1,000 of its FedEx Office Print & Ship Center locations around the US. The connectivity will be powered by AT&T and will be arriving in its other stores by the end of October, bringing the number of locations that offer free Wi-Fi closer to 1,600, including former Kinko stores, which FedEx recently took over. The company believes that offering free Wi-Fi will be useful to draw in business customers who need to keep working while they’re shipping packages. We’re not sure if it’ll work out, but we’re not going to complain about additional locations with free Wi-Fi.
