The majority of mobile Web users, those working outside the home or office, visit news and current event Web sites, and 56 percent have accessed those sites on a mobile device, such as a smart phone. JiWire monitors Web traffic at 30,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the country and releases quarterly data on the usage patterns they identify. Their latest report, covering Oct. – Dec. 2009, indicated an increase in both mobile device use and Internet access via public Wi-Fi. News and current events sites top the most visited list, followed by search engines, social networking and financial market data.
