Atlanta, GA December 19 2003-—Creative SOURCE Unlimited, Inc. today announced it has launched a new line of business called Creative WiFi. Creative WiFi provides broadband wireless Hotspots. Hotspots offer high-speed Internet access using a wireless technology known as Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity; a.k.a. 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g).
Mobile professionals, students and consumers with their Wi-Fi enabled computers or portable devices can access the Internet through a Wi-Fi Access Point (a.k.a. Hotspot) installed in a restaurant, coffee shop, park, campus, waiting area, business center, hotel, airport, and other public location."I'm excited about this new line of business. I expect Creative WiFi to be a market leader in providing wireless Hotspots," said Keith Cheney, President and CEO, Creative SOURCE Unlimited. It is currently estimated that 30 million business travelers carry portable computers. However, estimates for the number of portable computers that connect to the Internet wirelessly is only about 2 million, leaving growth potential of 28 million existing portable computer users.
By 2005 portable computer usage is expected to double to 60 million users. That leaves 58 million portable computers that could potentially want wireless Internet access between now and 2005. Industry experts predict the number of active wireless devices needing Internet access will increase to about 20 million by 2006. Therefore, the need for wireless Internet access is expected to grow 10 fold over the next three years. The demand for wireless Internet access is skyrocketing.About Creative WiFiCreative WiFi provides both wired and wireless public Internet access solutions.
