Ofcom Decision Makes the United Kingdom the Second Country to Release 6GHz Wi-Fi Band

by Stephanie Tomsett | 3Q 2020 | IN-5894
Ofcom, the regulator that manages the United Kingdom’s spectrum, is aiding the increased momentum of 6GHz Wi-Fi as it has announced that it is freeing 500MHz of 6GHz band spectrum for indoor use (specifically 5925-6425MHz) without the need for a license, as well as allowing license-exempt Very Low Power (VLP) outdoor use, removing Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) requirements in the 5.8GHz band, and updating Wi-Fi router technical requirements to ease wireless network congestion. This will create better User Experiences (UX), as well as provide Ultra HD streaming, Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR) uses.
