Quote: Wi-Fi works by broadcasting over airwaves that are open for anyone to use. Today, it’s working over two bands: 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Now, there’s a new addition as a third band, 6GHz.
As per IT Home’s report, the recent release of some FCC documents reveal that Google has planned to secretly test 6GHz band in 17 states of U.S. This was expected to arrive by the end of 2020 and there’s a couple of months still left for the testing to effectively take place.
With 6GHz band, it is expected to yield faster outputs by making full use of the frequency spectrum and provide reliable broadband connections.
The list of 26 Cities and towns in 17 states of U.S where testing has already begun:
Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.
