Wireless Week: North America and Europe are expected to lead the Wi-Fi hot spot charge, according to new findings from ABI Research. The firm predicts commercial Wi-Fi hot spots will grow by 47 percent worldwide to 143,700 by the close of 2006.
 
Hot spots are being driven, in large part, by the growth of Wi-Fi offerings at retail. McDonalds, for instance, plans to outfit 17 percent of its 4,000 locations with hot spots. The hospitality sector also is driving demand. By 2010, the hospitality industry is expected to offer more than 109,000 Wi-Fi hot spots.
