The FCC today voted unanimously to boost Wi-Fi capabilities across the country. The ruling opens up 100MHz of airwaves in the lower part of the 5GHz spectrum for use by Wi-Fi devices. Previously, these airwaves were reserved for satellite phone companies. According to the FCC, these unlicensed airwaves will now help Wi-Fi networks handle more traffic at higher speeds in congested areas like convention centers, parks, and airports.
