Here’s an interesting survey from goo Research, reported on by japan.internet.com, that I found lying about on my hard disk; it was a look at Wi-fi at overseas airports.
Between the 6th and 10th of February 2014 1,076 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 53.1% of the sample were male, 13.7% in their teens, 15.4% in their twenties, 21.2% in their thirties, 17.2% in their forties, 15.0% in their fifties, and 17.6% aged sixty or older.
Setting up one’s device is usually pretty painless these days, but the problem I have is that certain airports have a system that requires you to watch an ad before you can sign in, or others hide the “free” button away in a corner in order to persuade you to sign up for the paid version.
