BT Wi-fi now has over 5 million Wi-fi hotspots in the UK and Ireland – with more than 20,000 new hotspots added each week over the past year.
There were more than 400 million connections across our wi-fi network in 2012/13, and an incredible 13 petabytes of data (that’s 13 billion megabytes) were used across our Wi-fi network during 2012/13*.
That’s similar to downloading 3.9 billion MP3s (iTunes currently has 26m songs in its library), or non-stop streaming of The Hobbit in HD for 1,042 years ! If you were to take smartphone photos placed side by side, this amount of data would be over 624,000 miles long or long enough to wrap around the equator twice.**
Period between April 2012 and March 2013
Average smartphone camera photo is 3MB in size and the average printed photo is 8.5 inches wide.
