Free WiFi hotspots outnumber paid WiFi hotspots in the US

Free WiFi vs paid WiFi

For the first time ever, the amount of free WiFi hotspots in the US outnumber the amount of paid WiFi locations. According to some statistics released by JiWire, an advertising company that specializes in marketing through WiFi networks, the growth of free WiFi has taken the driver’s seat and is now leading the way for providing public internet access spots around the country. JiWire also noticed that this isn’t a trend only in the US – it’s happening all over the world as well. Not very surprising, considering how much everyone likes free stuff, and free WiFi tends to draw in a large number of customers into establishments. How many of you pay for WiFi hotspots, or do you believe that cellular data the way to go?
