Archived report. Considering that most, if not all, of current smart phone models are Wi-Fi enabled it becomes apparent that the use of Wi-Fi hotspots is going to grow in-line with smart phone and mobile device uptake. Around the world Wi-Fi has become a quiet achiever with some of the leading markets including parts of Europe (Germany, the UK and the Netherlands); Asia (Japan, China and South Korea) and North America. This report provides valuable information and insights on some of the leading Wi-Fi markets around the world.
In Europe, the principal markets for WiFi are Germany, the UK and the Netherlands, although there is also considerable activity in Scandinavia, Switzerland and Austria. The main WiFi players include TeliaSonera, Swisscom, BT, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile. South Korea has established itself as a global leader in wireless internet. A new wave of WiFi expansion was expected in China, fuelled by increased broadband penetration and less expensive WiFi-enabled laptops, bringing WiFi to homes, offices and public spaces. In recent years WiFi has been widely taken up in US workplaces and broadband households.
