A report from Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group finds that laptop and tablet users spend more time connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi than any other type of connection. Of the 1,079 users surveyed, 75% said they own a laptop and 20% own some kind of tablet. On average, laptops are used about 3 hours per day, and most of that time is spent wirelessly connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi.
Almost all tablet users said they relied on Wi-Fi, while about 30% relied on mobile/cellular connectivity. On average, users spent about 2.5 hours a day using their mobile devices at home, versus less than one hour a day using them at work or on the go.
More than half the survey respondents (52%) said they own a smartphone, and all of them relied on cellular connectivity. Three quarters said they also use Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet or to make calls on their smartphones. The respondents used their smartphones an average of two hours a day, but were connected only about half that time.
