Wi-Fi speeds are about to ….

Wi-Fi speeds are actually about to triple! I assume everyone is going to be happy.

When both the network and its users are looking into technology, researchers claim that wifi will speed up by two to three times. Devices on  networks that aren’t equipped with the technology won’t see that much improvement to be noticeable, but should still gain some additional benefit. 

For the past couple of years, Wi-Fi networks could only serve one device at a time, cycling quickly among different users. This creates a much slower speed for everyone when more devices are connected to the network. In my opinion, Streaming of video chatting can be like sitting in the driver’s seat at rush hour, because the wifi is not always fast enough for it to work immediately. You’ll connect to the internet especially, but it might take some time, (especially with RU Wireless). 

However, a new approach called “MU-MIMO: Multi user, multiple input, multiple output” allows networks to transmit data to multiple groups of users simultaneously that adapt on the fly to changes in usage, resulting in the internet being alot faster. 

Perhaps this explains why my RU Wireless has actually been working the past few days, haha!

  1. Thank the lord. Adding repeaters just slows down WiFi speed, so now with this, hopefully there won’t be a need for repeaters.
