McDonald’s Sales Are Down; WiFi Among Fastest For Public Networks
McDonald’s has one thing going for it.
Data collected by OpenSignal found the chain has some of the fastest Wi-Fi speeds among public networks in the country. The average download speed is four times faster than speeds in Panera stores.
But McDonald’s dominance doesn’t extend much beyond restaurant chains. Hotel groups offer faster speeds, with McLean-based Hilton topping the list.
McDonald’s also reported a bigger-than-expected dip in sales. The world’s biggest hamburger chain says sales dropped 2.5 percent last month, dragged down by a loss in U.S. customers and a food safety scare in Asia.
