US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Verge U.S. website reports that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission has approved the allocation of the six-GHz radio frequency band for unlicensed use. This means that these frequencies can be used to transmit Wi-Fi signals and will provide a more stable and faster wireless connection.

The commission’s decision gives the green light to the largest expansion in the range of wireless networks since they appeared in 1998. The new spectrum is four times the amount of frequencies already available for routers and other devices. Now for the transmission of data over Wi-Fi, two bands are allocated: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, respectively. Due to the large number of household and industrial devices using these frequencies, the signals often overlap, leading to distortion and loss of communication.

A new range of frequencies will be involved in an expanded version of the already used Wi-Fi 6 wireless standard called Wi-Fi 6E. It will be able to provide data transfer rates of up to 2 Gbit / s with a delay of two milliseconds. Devices that will work according to the new standard in the 6 GHz band should appear by the end of this year.

“6 GHz access is a fundamental development in the field of wireless connections that provides Wi-Fi with a large space for implementing innovative scenarios and creating new applications,” commented Edgar Figueroa, head of the Federal Computer and Wi-Fi Manufacturers Association, on the decision of the Federal Commission. Alliance. “Today’s global climate underscores the importance of Wi-Fi for connectivity and performance.”

Note that while the new frequency range is allocated for use only in the United States. However, there is no doubt that other states will also soon adopt a new wireless standard.
