You’re clearly not Canadian - carrier prices and data caps and coverage are generally horrendous. Everyone I know here uses WiFi when they get the chance. When some one comes over to my apartment for the first time the first exchange is usually my WiFi password for their phone.
Or American in a large swath of America. Most of us keep WiFi on much as possible.
As a Canadian, it’s the same situation - at least my internet plan at home is unlimited.
Same for the UK – recently, a bus company upgraded their buses in the local area to have a WiFi network for passengers, and plenty of other bus companies and trains do the same. My friends tend to go to cafes and restaurants for the free wifi too, so I don’t think it’ll go away here for a while unless things drastically change.
