Wi-Fi 7 is here: 5 things you need to know about the new wireless technology

Wi-Fi 7 officially offers a faster connection in home and work environments. In addition to a next-generation performance boost, the updated standard will include the introduction of several new features.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has posted several messages We describe all the changes, but we’ll cover the five most important new features, starting with 320MHz channels. These new channels are twice the size of 160MHz channels and have the highest bandwidth available on 5GHz routers. That greater bandwidth will result in faster speeds. However, there’s a catch: the 320MHz channels will only be available in countries that allow access to the 6GHz band. A list of countries that support 6GHz can be found on the Wi-Fi Alliance website. They include, but are not limited to, the US, UK, Australia, Japan and Mexico.
