We nearly overlooked this yesterday but Ofcom has proposed to enable greater access to around 18.2GHz of Extremely High Frequency (EHF) spectrum in the 100-200GHz range, which they feel could potentially be harnessed for very high speed data links, high precision industrial use (micro positioning of robots) or health screening etc.

The UK telecoms regulator has today proposed to free up 500MHz of spectrum in the 6GHz frequency band on a licence-exempt basis so that it can be used by the latest WiFi networks (e.g. Wi-Fi 6 / 6E – 802.11ax), which would make such networks faster, more reliable and a bit more secure.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has begun its campaign to nudge broadband and telecoms regulators from across the world to support their efforts to approve the 6GHz band for use alongside WiFi networks, which could in theory be introduced into the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard alongside the Wi-Fi 6E terminology.

Residents in the tiny rural Monmouthshire village of Llanddewi Rhydderch in Wales now have a second 1Gbps capable speed option for broadband in the form of a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, which is intended to complement their existing Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) trial.

The company created to deploy and manage InLinkUK’s WiFi kiosks alongside BT, Intersection and advertising firm Primesight – InLink Limited – has called in the administrators.

A test conducted by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) on the new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard at the Mettis Aerospace factory in the UK has managed to deliver a real speed of 700Mbps (unclear if this is just download) with latency below 6ms (milliseconds), although that’s a far cry from the multi-Gigabit speeds promised.
