Devicescape has published its Q1 2012 survey which shows that many people are driven from cellular networks to Wi-Fi because of the lousy cellular connections. The survey found that almost 61 percent of respondents connect their mobile devices to Wi-Fi at work. With 91 percent of those surveyed stating that they have WiFi connectivity at home, 84.4 percent prefer using their smartphones on their home Wi-Fi network. Of the respondents who have tablets, 59 percent say Wi-Fi is their preferred method of connectivity for their tablets. When choosing a tablet, the 3G/4G service feature is of importance to 56.4 percent of respondents.
NOTE: This is quite obvious to me especially now that US cellular operators have done away with “unlimited” data plans.
