I wanted to document this separately just so I’ve got a record of it. If you think that event WiFi is one of those ‘meh, maybe’ things that nobody bothers using, think again.
Have a read of this:
According to Max Wi-Fi, 989GB of data was transferred over the four days across nearly 5,000 devices. Of these, 85 per cent were iPhones and iPads. The public Wi-Fi provided at the show accounted for nearly 70 per cent of all data transferred, while the remainder was transferred over exhibitor and production networks. On average, 6.5MB of data was transferred per second.
Now. We’re not talking about some all-singing, all-dancing tech show. No, this was at an art event! Impressive.
And you know what, I don’t blame those iPhone/iPad users. If there’s a fast connection made available, I’d rather use that than my patchy 3G service.
NB: Good work Max WiFi.
