Meraki: iPad's Generate 400% More Wi-Fi Traffic

iPads use significantly more Wi-Fi data than the average mobile device -- in fact, over 400% more Wi-Fi data than the average Android, iPod, and iPhone -- according to a new study from Meraki, which has over 17,000 Wi-Fi networks in operation.


Meraki anonymously surveyed over 100,000 randomly selected devices accessing general use, public, and educational Wi-Fi networks across the US. The survey looked at bandwidth usage and operating system popularity over selected periods in 2010 and 2011.


Some of the survey results:

  • Between 2010 and 2011, mobile platforms overtook desktop platforms in percentage of Wi-Fi devices.


  • The average iPad consumes over 400% more Wi-Fi data than the average Android, iPod, and iPhone.


  • iOS and Android together now account for 58% of Wi-Fi devices, compared to 33% just one year ago.


  • The iPhone is now the single most popular Wi-Fi device with 32% share.
