Selling an old mobile could keep people up to date.

Consumers who are not already making use of Wi-Fi on their phone might consider mobile recycling as an option, in order to make an upgrade.

It is 25 years since the Federal Communications Commission permitted unlicensed access to the radio spectrum for communications, allowing for the 802.11 committee to work on the development of Wi-Fi services.

Chris Davies, general manager at D-Link, UK and Ireland, said: "To be able to receive and reply to emails or to do research online while on a train or in a restaurant, has not only changed daily work routines, but it has made such devices indispensable."

He added that Wi-Fi has made the "anywhere lifestyle" a possibility as it allows information to be viewed wherever you are.

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance people are keen to do more with the technology as 74 per cent of respondents to a survey said they would like to use Wi-Fi to watch movies or television on any screen in their home.
