Wi-Fi 6GHz is allowed in US

FCC has adopted new rules to make a portion of spectrum in the 6 GHz band available for unlicensed use.

FCC says in this report: “…To meet this demand, we are adopting rules to make 1200 megahertz of spectrum available for unlicensed use in the 6 gigahertz (GHz) band (5.925-7.125 GHz). Unlicensed devices will share this spectrum with incumbent licensed services under rules that are carefully crafted to protect those licensed services and to enable both unlicensed and licensed operations to thrive throughout the band. Our actions here will provide additional spectrum to complement spectrum where Wi-Fi is presently deployed to ease any existing and anticipated congestion so that businesses and consumers can take advantage of new data intensive applications.”
