Mobility in 2013: BYOD, Wi-Fi hotspots, and Device Consolidation


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
