WHAT’S THE MEANING?
Wi-Fi or WiFi is the wireless local area networking technology (WLAN) that is widely utilized for connecting computers and other electronic devices to the internet. Moreover, Wi-Fi is the wireless form of the Ethernet network. Before the technology was called Wi-Fi, people used to call it WaveLan, FlankSpeed, DragonFly, WECA, and IEEE802.11b Direct Sequence.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that according to a multinational study, people are more addicted to Wi-Fi than sex, chocolate, or alcohol? As the internet has become omnipresent, the seemingly ‘need’ of people for it has also become stronger. The iPass Mobile Professional Report in 2016 revealed that 40% of 1700 people are more willing to live without sex than to live without their Wi-Fi connection, while 37% of them voted for sex, and a rate of 14% said that chocolate is their addiction surpassing the rate of those who are into alcohol.
Moreover, a recent study at McMaster University in Ontario revealed that majority of the people are claiming that their improved state and quality of life can be attributed to their heavy usage of Wi-Fi. Interestingly, one of the factors that people consider in purchasing an internet service is the speed. Higher upload speed is most favorable for people who are into playing real-time games. Amidst all the issues surrounding the internet, Wi-Fi has truly revolutionized the world because of the convenience, mobility, productivity, and the efficiency it has offered.
