Faster WiFi {3}

by Ricardo C
This article relates to Wi-Fi speeds. A team of Japanese researchers has just broken the record for wireless data transmission in the terahertz range. This is 20 times faster than most current Wi-Fi connections. The researchers focused on an unregulated part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 300GHz and 3THz. Using these frequencies the researchers were able to develop hardware capable of transmitting at 3Gb/s  at frequencies up to 542GHz which is about 20 times faster than current Wi-Fi connection. According to the article this is just a concept and terahertz Wi-Fi would probably only work over short distances. read more...
