More iPhone Users AccessIinternet Through Wi-Fi Than Android Users
comScore, an internet marketing research company, has recently reported that in United States and United Kingdom, Wi-Fi is accessed more through the iPhones as compared to the Android mobile Phones.
“With the rise in adoption of smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices, network operators have seen a surge in mobile web activity and face new challenges in keeping up with data demands while maintaining their quality of service,” said Serge Matta, comScore President of Operator and Mobile Solutions. “As bandwidth usage increases and the spectrum becomes more scarce, operators, OEMs, and others in the mobile ecosystem should understand the different dynamics between the use of mobile and Wi-Fi networks to develop strategies to optimize resources and provide their customers with continued high-quality network service.”
The company has reported that in U.S. 71% of all unique iPhones use internet through the mobile as well as through Wi-Fi while 32% of unique Android phone users access internet through both types of connections. On the other hand, in U.K. both the percentages are high, so 87% of unique iPhone users access internet through both types of connections while 57% of unique Android phone users access both types of connections to use internet.
“The difference in mobile and Wi-Fi network usage across the U.S. and U.K. suggests that there are a few factors at play affecting Wi-Fi utilization rates,” said Matta.
