WANTED: More Spectrum, Better Wi-Fi
Hardly 15 years old, Wi-Fi technology has become the connective tissue binding our digital lifestyles. It’s allowed us to push the limits of wireless technology and to imagine the possibility of a true Internet of Things. But if you’ve ever tried to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot in a busy coffee shop or at the airport, you know that Wi-Fi connections can become overloaded and sluggish.
America’s innovators know that next generation devices won’t work unless they can rely on fast, easily accessible Wi-Fi. If we don't do something to solve the Wi-Fi crunch soon, soon, we risk missing out on these future technologies.
Fortunately there’s a solution. If we free up more spectrum and allow it to be used by unlicensed public technologies, we could jump start a new generation of Wi-Fi with huge coverage areas and speeds up to a gigabit per second. In this new era of super connectivity, what was once only imagined becomes possible.
