CES: Gigabit Wi-Fi

I always thought wireless would have achieved greater strides by now. Seems it took years just to get wireless routers in business and home offices. And now that they are, we need them faster! Got to stream those videos, movies and MMORPGs.

At CES 2012, vendors will be showing next-generation Wi-Fi in two different frequencies: 5GHz, for what will eventually be the IEEE 802.11ac standard, and 60GHz, for what will eventually be 802.11ad. The former can reach data rates of 1.3 gigabits per second, the latter, up to 7Gbps.

That is some serious data rates!

via CES: Gigabit Wi-Fi takes center stage.
