More People Going Wireless

from the join-the-crowd dept

The latest study from the folks at the Pew project (who put out reports at an amazing pace) shows that approximately one in six US users have logged onto the internet via WiFi. Actually, the report says via WiFi "or another wireless technology" which seems fairly broad. Does that include accessing the internet via a mobile phone? Either way, there's also a bit of a generation gap as one in three US users under the age of 27 have used wireless technologies to access the internet. Of course, part of me also wonders how many people have used wireless connections without knowing it. In other words, if you sat at my desk and used my computer, (unless you checked carefully) you might not have any idea that it's connected wirelessly to the router.
