Much of this study is really obvious: For example, it states that customers will either pay a monthly subscription or on a per-session basis. Ya think?
But, one interesting stat here is that just 17 percent of hot spots are in hotels, airports, train stations and conventions. These are the places, the study concludes, that business people will want Wi-Fi access. I suspect that number is a bit skewed because while maybe not so many conference centers have permanent Wi-Fi networks, often conference sponsors deploy a network for the duration of the show. Those instances wouldn't be included in the 17 percent figure.
Also, the study concludes that coffee shops are not conducive to business traveler usage. Really? I think they are. There's always a coffee shop and usually an empty seat nearby so seems to me a perfect place to park it and get some work done while on the road.
