Consumers are already juggling their various and many Smartphones, PCs, and Tablets for their many entertainment and productivity activities. They’re also finding many ways to connect, through Broadband Internet as well as through non-Broadband connections – from dial-up to Wi-Fi Hotspots and tethered phone connections.
