Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 5 January 2020 at 06:53 AM EST. 30 Comments
Ahead of this week's Consumer Electronics Show, the Wi-Fi Alliance has announced WiFi 6E.

WiFi 6E has all of the features of last year's WiFi 6 specification but opens it up for devices operating on a 6GHz band. WiFi at 6GHz should offer better performance and lower latency, pending regulatory approvals for utilizing this additional (currently unlicensed) spectrum.

More details on WiFi 6E via Wi-Fi.org.
