Today’s unanimous FCC vote will quickly benefit consumers who are using Wi-Fi now more than ever to work and learn from home, to watch shows and to videoconference, and to shop and to get their news. The Order making 1200 megahertz of unlicensed spectrum available in the 6GHz band will dramatically improve Wi-Fi performance and capacity, and will protect existing users of the spectrum. It is a significant step on the path to deploying next generation, gigabit Wi Fi services to complement our world class gigabit broadband networks.
