Dutch increasingly use wifi outside the door, is the result of research by Telecompaper. The advent of Wi-Fi hotspots offered by providers such as UPC, KPN and Ziggo play a role in the growth of Wi-Fi use in the Netherlands.

Wifi logo In May 2011, 58 percent of respondents indicated they have Wi-Fi networks outside the door. Never used In February of this year that number had dropped to 29 percent, reports Telecompaper based on a survey of consumers.

Dutch Internet users who do choose to use regular wifi others choose three quarters of cases for an encrypted network. Furthermore, Telecompaper reports that free wifi hotspots offered by 13 percent of respondents, among other UPC, KPN and Ziggo are used. That number was in May 2011 still 6 percent, but then had UPC and Ziggo their Wifi Spots not yet rolled out.

The number of customers who pay to access a hotspot access has decreased: only 7 percent would pay for wifi access, compared to 11 percent in 2011, this year Presumably this is also the result of the substantial increase in free hotspots.
