BYOD is on the rise in 2013, and connectivity seems to be its largest roadblock. However, this hurdle is quickly diminishing as the number of global public Wi-Fi hotspots skyrockets. The most recent iPass quarterly study on the “Global Mobile Workforce” reported these findings, among many others.

The report examines: Wi-Fi growth, Evolution of BYOD, Mobile Worker Devices, and Mobile Data Usage. Here are a few of the report’s statistical findings:

  • Most mobile workers are within range of a Wi-Fi network for at least 11 hours per day.
  • There will be 5.8 million public Wi-Fi hotspots by 2015
  • A majority of mobile workers said they would choose either the iPhone or iPad if they had one device for work
