On the 27th, the IEEE published the standard for new wifi. Today we have 802.11n. Eventually, we will have the just published 802.22. With this, the transmitter and receiver can be up to 100km, or 62 miles, from each other and still work at 22Mb per channel. So exactly what does that mean? Well, if you work less than 60 miles from your home, which most of us do, you’ll be able to access and use your home internet connection to surf the web, transfer files, print documents, watch videos from your home server, etc. You get the idea. This could give way to some pretty interesting new gadgets. I’ll keep and eye on this and update as it evolves, but what would you use 62 mile range wifi for?
