WiFi users spend more time online

Posted on Tuesday, February 27 2007 @ 10:35:24 CET by

A study from Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that people with WiFi spend more time online:
A survey of 798 Internet users found that 72 percent of wireless users check e-mail at least once a day, while only 63 percent of wired broadband users do so. The same pattern held true for reading news online, suggesting that wireless access offers "relentless connectivity" that might change a person's online behavior.

Even among Internet users, though, wireless use remains fairly low. The survey found that 34 percent of current Internet users have made a WiFi connection at some point in the past, and only 19 percent of Internet users have WiFi at home.

Who are these people? They tend to be younger than the general Internet-using population. Wireless users are currently concentrated between 18 and 49 years of age, while the general Internet population is concentrated between 30 and 64. Wireless users also tend to be male; men accounted for 56 percent of all wireless users, but only 46 percent of all Internet users.
