Historic FCC decision secures future of Wi-Fi® innovation
Austin, Texas and Washington, D.C. – April 23, 2020 – Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) made a historic and visionary decision that will transform wireless connectivity for decades to come. By making 1200 megahertz of spectrum in 6 GHz available for unlicensed innovation, the Commission opened the flood gates of Wi-Fi® benefits for American consumers, enterprises and the economy. Most importantly, the FCC decision ensures that Wi-Fi users can stay connected to colleagues and family, and to healthcare, business, education, and other critical services. Wi-Fi Alliance® enthusiastically supports this action and is grateful to the Commission’s leadership and FCC staff for their dedicated effort and commitment over the course of the 6 GHz proceeding.
