XCellAir in the News: Operators Miss $6.7bn managed Wi-Fi Opportunity

February 14, 2017 / XCellAir, wi-fi / Posted By: Kelly Capizzi

Operators have the potential to miss a $6.7 billion opportunity from consumer interest in paid-for managed Wi-Fi. This warning comes from InterDigital’s XCellAir, an expert in Wi-Fi Quality of Experience (QoE), based on their findings from a new survey of 1,000 consumers each in the US and UK. The $6.7 billion opportunity comes from revenue lost from consumers willing to pay for managed Wi-Fi services (estimated $3.3 billion) and OPEX savings from a reduction in helpline calls and engineer visits (estimated up to $3.4 billion).

 XCellAir released this result and several other significant findings from the survey on Tuesday, and there has been a tremendous amount of media attention surrounding the findings throughout this week. Check out just some of the media coverage below:

XCellAir also recently announced the launch of its Wi-Fi Advisor, a free tool which helps ISPs and operators to determine the Wi-Fi service customers need in order to provide reliable Wi-Fi performance throughout the home.
