SEATTLE -- Finding a fast, convenient and reliable Wi-Fi Internet connection is now much easier for Starbucks customers in Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico and Wisconsin. Starbucks Coffee Company (Nasdaq: SBUX), T-Mobile USA, Inc. and HP (NYSE, Nasdaq: HPQ) have expanded their leadership role in offering consumers the ability to stay connected on-the-go. The T-Mobile HotSpot wireless broadband Internet service has been added to more than 110 Starbucks stores in these five states.

With more than 3,100 Starbucks coffeehouses now offering Internet access nationwide, the Company continues to build on the success of T-Mobile HotSpot in its stores. Starbucks has extended the reach of the T-Mobile HotSpot service to new markets, and is providing customers with exclusive digital entertainment content found only by connecting at Starbucks.

“Starbucks customers have clearly embraced Wi-Fi technology as part of their daily routine,” said Ken Lombard, president of Music and Entertainment for Starbucks. “The convenience and reliability of T-Mobile HotSpot is bringing customers in more frequently and keeping them in the stores longer, primarily during off-peak hours. For these reasons, we believe T-Mobile HotSpot is having a positive impact on our business and is enhancing the Starbucks Experience for our customers.”
