Who Uses Public Wi-Fi Hotspots?

According to Juniper Research, as reported in the July 26, 2013 issue of Processor Magazine, nearly half of all data traffic from smartphones and tablets flows through Wi-Fi hotspots and small cell networks. Between now and 2017, Juniper expects this amount of traffic to grow from 9,000 petabytes (9+ million gigabytes) to ten times that number.

Expect your wireless carrier to be reacting to this off-network data usage by introducing their own Wi-Fi and 4G long-term evolution (LTE) services.
