Wi-Fi 7 is here – 5 things to know about the new wireless tech

Wi-Fi 7 is officially here offering faster connection across home and work environments. In addition to a next-gen performance boost, the updated standard will see the introduction of several new features.

The Wi-Fi Alliance made multiple posts detailing all the changes, but we’ll cover the top five new features, starting with 320MHz channels. Double the size of 160MHz channels, these new channels are the highest bandwidth amount available on 5GHz routers. That larger bandwidth will result in faster speeds. There is a catch, however: the 320MHz channels will only be available in countries that enable access to the 6GHz band. A list of nations supporting 6GHz can be found on the Wi-Fi Alliance’s website. They include, but are not limited to, the US, UK, Australia, Japan, and Mexico. 

Benefits to VR and you
