AT&T Cites Fast Growth on Public Wi-Fi Network

AT&T handled 68.1 million connections on its public Wi-Fi network during Q2 2010 -- up from 15 million connections in the second quarter of 2009. Customers have made 121.2 million connections in the first half of 2010, already far surpassing the 85.5 million connections made in all of 2009. Wi-Fi usage has seen steady and significant growth each quarter, including a nearly 30 percent increase from the first to second quarter of 2010.

"The extraordinary growth in Wi-Fi usage is yet another indication of customers' reliance on mobile broadband and of the many benefits that venues receive by making Wi-Fi available to their customers and employees," said Angie Wiskocil, senior vice president, AT&T Wi-Fi Services.
