Pizza Express offers free wi-fiWould you like wi-fi with your pizza?
17 June 2011
Pizza Express diners will now be able to browse the web using the free wi-fi connection installed in each of its 384 restaurants.
The service is provided by The Cloud, a wi-fi company that also supplies the internet connection in McDonalds restaurants, J D Wetherspoon pubs and Pret A Manger sandwich shops.
Many mobile devices such as laptops, netbooks and tablets are now wi-fi enabled.
Pizza Express hopes to attract customers who may want to make use of a fast internet connection while out for a meal.
Wi-fi is usually faster and more reliable than a 3G mobile connection, so is more suited to demanding internet applications such as watching videos.

To sign-up for free wi-fi at Pizza Express, it's necessary to create an account with The Cloud. This is a quick one-time process. Your account can then be used to access the internet at other establishments with free wi-fi from The Cloud.
