There's a reason why network operators love WiFi: their customers use a lot of data. The good news is, WiFi keeps getting better -- or at least in some parts of the US.

Mobile data and networks analytics company WeFi Inc. has been measuring WiFi and cellular network speeds on more than 170 million iOS and Android devices across the US since the beginning of the year. Its findings make it confident WiFi speeds will exceed 120 Mbit/s by 2020 and also give insight into what US consumers use their mobile devices for.

Re: WiFi problems
BT WiFi drives me crazy. It's everywhere in London, but hardly ever seems to work.

WiFi problems
Increasing WiFi speeds is great, but the reliability and handoff also needs to improve. Okay, I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but there are too many broken, bad, inconsistent public WiFi hotspots today.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
