Apple iPhone users consume more Wi-Fi than PC owners do
Apple iPhone users consumed a whopping 32% of Wi-Fi used so far this year, up from 25% of the total used last year. Windows 7/Vista PC owners were a distant second with users responsible for 16% of Wi-Fi use this year, off from the 25% reading in 2010. The next smartphone platform is Android, coming in with 11% of Wi-Fi users. That ties them with users of the Apple iPod, also with 11%. One important note, the number of Wi-Fi using Android owners increased sharply from accounting for a minuscule 1% of all Wi-Fi users.
This year, smartphones are expected to account for half of all cellphones in use. With this trend expected to continue, and with the rolling out of more tablets, PCs and Macs will continue to see their share of Wi-Fi usage shrink. By the way, in case you are wondering, the report shows that the most data-intensive device of all is the Apple iPad which consumes an average of 200MB per month.
