By now, we all know how important Wi-Fi has become. It’s the dominant mode of connecting; some countries even spend 70 percent of their time on Wi-Fi. And soon, 60 percent of mobile data will go over Wi-Fi by 2019. But those numbers can seem a bit academic. How important is Wi-Fi to mobile professionals? It turns out, really important.
