Wi-Fi to gets its biggest upgrade in 20 years: US authorities agree to open up a huge chunk of radio spectrum in the 6GHz frequency band to internet routers — and it could massively improve your connection speed…

The US Federal Communications Commission is opening up radio spectrum in the 6GHz frequency band, ushering a new era of fast, low-latency internet connections.

The decision, voted on unanimously by the FCC, will add 1,200 Megahertz of Wi-Fi for unlicensed use and increase the amount of Wi-Fi spectrum by nearly fivefold.

The release of the spectrum offers new radio waves for routers, and is likely to result in better Wi-Fi service speeds, hyper-low latency and higher network capacity.
