wireless data

The transmission of data over the air. Wireless data includes all Internet-based communications, and although voice can be carried via the Internet protocol (voice over IP), the term excludes voice transmission that is paid by minutes of usage to a carrier.

Wireless data generally refers to transmission to and from a mobile device; however, "fixed wireless" applications transmit data over the air between stationary objects. See data plan, cellular generations, wireless LAN and mobile computing.
