WiFi – goes faster

WiFi has gone through several speed boosts due to smart engineers. The standard 801.11b is at 10mbps and used by many businesses and then there are even faster speeds such as 801.11g which goes up to 54mbps. Now the speed is even going to go faster.

Forbes writes While it may only seem a short while since the last great speed upgrade in Wi-Fi networking technology–the move from 10-megabit 802.11b to 54-megabit 802.11g–the people at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers are at it again. They’re already cooking up a new standard they intend to call 802.11n, which will push the transmission speeds to between 100 and 150 megabits per second.
