Reston, Va. – iPhone users are significantly more likely than Android users to connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi networks, according to new data from Reston-based comScore.
According to the report, 71 percent of iPhones in the U.S. used both mobile and Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet in February, while only 32 percent of Android phones used both types of connections.
When it came to those browsing only through mobile networks, however, Android users outpaced iPhone users, 68 percent to 29 percent.
“As bandwidth usage increases and the spectrum becomes more scarce, operators, OEMs, and others in the mobile ecosystem should understand the different dynamics between the use of mobile and Wi-Fi networks to develop strategies to optimize resources and provide their customers with continued high-quality network service,” said Serge Matta, comScore’s president of operator and mobile solutions.
