JiWire’s Mobile Audience Insights Report provides quarterly country rankings for publicly available WI-Fi locations.
Looking back in time from their initial report back in 2009 we have progressed from position 5 at the end of 2010 to the number 1 spot in Q1 2011 which we held for 18 month before being passed by South Korea.
Comparing our total to their worldwide figures our calculator figures that we possess some 22% of the total locations.
JiWire report that the worldwide free/paid split at Q1 2013 is 21.9% /78.1% whereas in the US it is 81.7%/19.3%.
Much more to peruse in their Insights which are all available on registration – there’s a special UK report in Q2 of 2011
The basis of their reports they give as:
“JiWire’s Mobile Audience Insights Report is based on data compiled from three sources: a survey of more than 1,300 randomly selected customers across JiWire’s combined Wi-Fi and mobile advertising platform. The report is based on data collected from March 2013. Quarterly public Wi-Fi location rankings and business model distributions are based on the final day of the quarter.”
