Reconsidering your wi-fi relationship

Easy to access, ubiquitous wi-fi for devices may seem like a sure-fire success, but there are some complexities that will need to be ironed out before it can reduce our reliance on cellular mobile networks.

For all the smartphone users out there, here’s a pertinent question: do you think you use more data over wi-fi than you do over 3G or LTE?

My guess is the answer is probably going to be “yes”.

So does that mean we need to deploy more wi-fi hotspots than we should invest in LTE?

Here’s one school of thought as seen on Kevin Fitchard's new GigaOm blog article:
