Will People Pay for Wi-Fi Access?

Associated PressAnd Parks Associates, a market research firm in Dallas, recently found that only 3 percent of Internet users have logged on through Wi-Fi hot spots. Only 5 percent of that small group took out a subscription to a Wi-Fi service.

"If you don't really travel nationwide, what's the need for hot spots?" said Parks Associates analyst Yuanzhe "Michael" Cai. "If you are just the average consumer, why do you want to go to a Starbucks or a hotel lobby when you can just use your DSL at home?"
