Wi-Fi 6: Upgrade Your Wi-Fi!

Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation of Wi-Fi. It’ll still do the same basic thing — connect you to the internet — just with a bunch of additional technologies to make that happen more efficiently, speeding up connections in the process.

Why are faster speeds important? To put it simply, file sizes are increasing. With HD video streaming services, you require faster speeds. With video calls and work from home, your connections to the internet need to be fast and reliable. Pretend Wi-Fi is a road from you to the internet, wouldn’t you want that road to be well kept and operating with efficient lanes?

Wi-Fi 6 not only allows the router or access point to communicate with all the devices in your network simultaneously, but instead of broadcasting data in all directions, Wi-Fi 6 takes advantage of beamforming; that detects the receiving devices and transmits a more localized data stream in that direction. With more efficient communication between your device and the access point or router, your device will experience better battery life as a result.
