It's not difficult to imagine a time where we will all be walking around using Internet connected devices on the move constantly, especially when you hear that the number of Wi-Fi hotspots looks set to break the six-figure barrier by the end of the year.
A new report from research firm Informa Telecoms and Media is predicting the number of Wi-Fi hotspots will reach 100,000 before the start of 2006.
The report uncovered that for Q2 of this year, there were some 84,000 Wi-Fi hotspots, with many of the new ones having appeared in the Asia-Pacific region. But the fastest growth for Q2 of this year has been in Western Europe. Some 42 per cent of the world's Wi-Fi hotspots are located in this region.
