Yet Another WiFi vs. 3G Study Saying WiFi Wins

When will it stop? Yet another misleading, misguided research report is saying that WiFi is better than 3G, by comparing what’s available now. When will these researchers learn that each technology is good for different situations, and it’s impossible to compare them now, with where they will each be a few years from now. Also, this study focuses on IT professionals, and asks them which technology they would use. They all say WiFi. Of course they do. WiFi is a local area networking technology. It’s a technology IT people should use. 3G is a wide-area technology, that IT people aren’t responsible for. I’m sure we’ll see yet another one of these pointless studies next week.
