Wireless handoff: that's why mobile data is growing slower than forecast

BT Wi-Fi Bring Public Wireless Internet to 5 Million UK and Ireland Hotspots - ISPreview UK: "According to BT, its national network grows by 20,000 hotspots a week and last year (April 2012 to March 2013) recorded more than 400 million connections. On top of that their wifi network also reported a total data consumption of 13 Petabytes during the same period, which equates to 13 Billion MegaBytes if you prefer." That's an awful lot of hand-off to 5m wifi points - and explains Scott Marcus' presentation to the European Parliament that mobile traffic growth numbers are falling like a stone to fixed traffic levels. 'via Blog this'
