Boingo Wireless Sees WLAN Spike from iPhone Users

Boingo Wireless published some key data points and statistics from its public Wi-Fi network:

  • iPhones and iPod Touches represented almost 23% of all devices accessing Wi-Fi in all Boingo owned and operated networks in airports, ferries and convention centers during May 2009, second only to Windows XP and ahead of Windows Vista and Macintosh laptops.

  • iPhone unique visitors were up nearly 380% from May 2008 to May 2009, making it the fastest growing platform just ahead of the Nokia eSeries smartphones (372% growth).

  • The average number of minutes used by a Boingo iPhone or iPod Touch account is 292 per month; that figure is on the rise, up 28 percent since January 2009. Broken down into hours, people spend nearly five hours per month using Wi-Fi on their iPhone or iPod Touch.
