In that regard, mobile devices on fixed Wi-Fi networks now account for almost 30 percent of North American fixed access traffic compared to just 9 percent of traffic five years ago. Tablets and smartphones have overtaken laptop and desktop PCs, which now account for less than 25 percent of total traffic on fixed access networks, said the report.
