Yes it is,id say smartphone owners probably user their phone 75% of the time on wifi in comparison to mobile data connection

That's a pretty specific number to throw out there. I would say I use Wi-Fi more like 85% of the time but some people don't ever use it.

I think this is great news. The only time I don't use Wi-Fi is if my phone cannot find a Wi-Fi connection. Otherwise, I'd rather use Wi-Fi because it's faster and more convenient. Even though Sprint has unlimited data, their 3G and 4G WiMAX is so slow and 4G LTE is not yet available in my area.
