Has Wi-Fi Become a Necessity?

This research confirms the very different communication preferences between different generations. See my previous articles here, here and here

The belief that wi-fi has become a necessity is apparently shared across other age groups as well. Related research by Wakefield Research, commissioned by the Wi-Fi Alliance, says more Americans are ‘borrowing’ their neighbor’s wi-fi than ever before. In a 2008 poll only 18% of respondents admitted tapping into an unprotected network that wasn’t theirs. In the most recent poll 32% of respondents admitted doing the same.

Be sure to secure your wi-fi network.
