Mac users are generally sophisticated, highly mobile and heavy users of wireless data. They are often opinion leaders, with a significant potential to influence buying decisions and peer behaviour, but connecting a MAC to mobile data networks is still far too complex for most users. In addition, they want and expect wireless data solutions from their current operator.
