The role of Wi-Fi in critical times

8 Sep 2020
Digital Economy

The role of Wi-Fi has become even more critical in recent times. During the global COVID-19 health crisis, Wi-Fi has enabled families, enterprises, hospitals and schools, to keep connected with each other and as much as possible to continue everyday life. The trend towards wireless is only going to continue and be further accelerated from what was already predicted prior to COVID-19. 

AmCham EU therefore, believes that every citizen and every company across Europe should be able to reap the benefits of the higher quality and higher speed wireless broadband that the new spectrum in the lower 6GHz would bring. Releasing the lower 6GHz band will also contribute to the digitalisation of Europe. With Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi will be able to support many of the so-called 5G use cases and still provide a cost-effective indoor wireless access technology and capacity offload for mobile networks.
