San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2008
In Motion Technology, the leader in mobile networking technologies that efficiently connect and manage equipment, information and people in the field, today announced the results of a survey reflecting consumer demand for Internet access on public transportation. The online survey conducted in partnership with Vizu, found that commuters want Internet access and they are willing to pay for it. The survey was conducted in September utilizing Vizu's unique online market polling system, Vizu Answers.
When asked how often customers would utilize on-board wireless connectivity, more than 52% of respondents indicated that they would use the service often or very often. Additionally, when asked whether or not riders would be willing to pay a nominal fee - equivalent to $.50 a day - for reliable Internet access, more than 50% of customers responded yes. Overall, customers indicated that they would use wireless service during their commutes.
In Motion Technology's onBoard Mobile Gateway turns public transit vehicles into reliable, easy-to-use mobile hotspots, providing connectivity for all on-board data communications, including passenger devices such as laptops and personal digital assistants. Additionally, In Motion Technology solutions provide transit operators with powerful management tools that improve customer satisfaction and reduce communications costs.
"In today's fast-paced world, consumers demand instantaneous access to information," said Kirk Moir, President of In Motion Technology. "By enabling on-board Internet access, the Gateway provides commuters with the freedom to be connected -- for business or entertainment -- from virtually anywhere on the road."
