iPhone and Android Traffic by Connection Type

Adam Lella
Senior Marketing Insights Analyst
In May 2011, mobile phones running on the Google Android platform drove 35.6 percent of non-computer digital traffic in the U.S., while iPhones accounted for 23.5 percent of non-computer traffic. Interestingly, majority of the digital traffic coming from Android phones (78.3 percent) came through mobile networks, with only 21.7 percent of Android traffic coming over a WiFi/LAN connection.

Although a majority of total iPhone traffic (52.5 percent) did come from mobile networks as well, 47.5 percent of iPhone traffic came from a WiFi /LAN connection – more than double the share of WiFi traffic  for Androids.
