A survey by Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that 34 percent of U.S. Internet users have gone online through WiFi services or a cell phone network, including 27% who have logged on from somewhere other than their home or workplace.
That's up from February 2004, when 22 percent of Internet users said they had gone online using a wireless device.

Nineteen percent of Internet users now have a wireless network in their home. That number has nearly doubled since January 2005, when 10 percent said they had a home wireless network.

Three-quarters of the people with both a home wireless network and a laptop computer said they now use their laptop in different parts of the house.
