Study Supports Free “Super WiFi”

New Frequency Ranges May Make Free Network Access Possible over Long Distances and Relieve Mobile Communications Networks / Expected to Trigger Innovations

The need for the wireless transfer of data will increase significantly in the coming years. Scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) therefore propose to turn some of the TV frequencies that will become free into common property and to use it to extend existing wireless networks (WiFi) instead of using the frequencies for mobile communications. Their study, published in the international journal “Telecommunications Policy,” recommends that the additional frequencies not be marketed but made available to the population and companies at no cost
