Wi-Fi Spectrum Coalition Formed
A new coalition has been formed that is geared towards improving Wi-Fi, for both businesses and consumers. Known as WifiForward, the group seeks to alleviate the issues that face Wi-Fi in terms of the spectrums it currently uses. Wi-Fi generally suffers from a bottleneck due to spectrum frequencies that are overused. The group plans to gain support from the United State government in order to establish unlicensed rules that encourage development, strengthen current unlicensed spectrums, and make new spectrum available for unlicensed use at a variety of frequencies.
Members of WifiForward include ALA, Arris, Best Buy, Broadcom, CCIA, CEA, Charter, Comcast, CompTIA, EngineAdvocacy, Fastback Networks, Google, IAVM, Microsoft, Motorola, NCTA, SHLB, and Time Warner Cable.
