People looking to make use of the internet while travelling could wish to consider selling their old mobile phone for cash.

This may allow them to upgrade to a new device with Wi-Fi, a technology with a history dating back 25 years.

It is that long since the Federal Communications Commission allowed Wi-Fi to be developed by giving the 802.11 committee unlicensed access to the radio spectrum.

“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,” said Chris Davies, general manager at D-Link, UK and Ireland.

It is now possible to view information in almost any place, he suggested.

Findings from the Wi-Fi Alliance revealed that people would like to do more with the technology as 54 per cent of respondents wanted to be able to use Wi-Fi to synch a portable audio player to a music library.
