The FCC today approved new rules for the 6 GHz band that allow unlicensed use, including Wi-Fi. This opens up a large swath of new spectrum for Wi-Fi, which should result in faster, more reliable Wi-Fi when new devices become available that support the new band. The full 1200-MHz-wide band (5.925–7.125 GHz) will be available for indoor, low-power applications. Standard-power devices will have access to a smaller, 850 MHz portion of the band, with an automated system ensuring they don't interfere with existing, licensed users of the band, including microwave services that are used to support utilities, public safety, and wireless backhaul. The FCC is seeking comment on allowing higher power levels in the band.
