Meraki: Mobile devices now account for bulk of Wi-Fi traffic

Cloud networking company Meraki released a new study that indicates the average iPad consumes about 400 percent more Wi-Fi data--or 200 megabytes per month--than the average Android, iPod and iPhone device. Meraki, which anonymously surveyed more than 100,000 devices accessing Wi-Fi networks across the U.S., said iOS and Android together account for 58 percent of Wi-Fi devices, compared with 33 percent a year ago. The iPhone is the most popular Wi-Fi-enabled device with a 32-percent market share. Android now accounts for 11 percent of devices on Meraki's networks. Release
