Wakefield Research has its finger on the pulse of tech trends, and that’s evident with recent coverage on TechCrunch, CNET.com, Ars Technica, PCMag.com, and PCWorld!

The Wi-Fi Alliance and Edelman commissioned Wakefield to survey U.S. smartphone and tablet users on their attitudes towards streamlined Wi-Fi. The PR survey found that Americans are, in fact, more willing to pay for easier access to Wi-Fi hot spots. CNET reported the findings, highlighting that “90 percent of the 1,000 respondents polled said they would be more likely to stick with their current service provider if it offered the ability to connect automatically in Wi-Fi hot spots. And about 72 percent said they would pay more for it.”
