Free WiFi Killing Coffee Culture?

Now that Starbucks is providing free wifi to all some coffee shops are cutting back or cutting off their wifi offers.  Shop owners are saying that it detracts from the coffee house ambiance.

What do you think, are you more likely or less likely to visit a coffee house that offers free wifi?

I think, slightly MORE likely to visit if there's free wi-fi... but depends on why we're going. Just to pick up a quick coffee, then who cares. But we've had instances where we went just because of the wi-fi. For example, Ted has worked from a coffee shop when the internet was out at home. Or, we go there when we're out and about because we want to look something up and we can sit and drink a coffee while using the internet.
