The Associated Press this morning has an informative piece about how AT&T is leaning on Wi-Fi in high-traffic areas in an effort to boost data traffic while it eases network congestion. A cynic may claim that offloading data traffic is necessary considering AT&T’s highly-publicized network troubles, but I think the carrier deserves props for taking a leading role in embracing non-cellular delivery methods. And I think we’ll see competing operators follow that lead as surging traffic creates more problems on the networks.
