Now that the FCC has opened up the 6GHz band for unlicensed use for WiFi, we can really start the clock on WiFi 6E. So, when will we see 6GHz capable devices? Late this year, according to this article from CNET. Personally, I don’t think 6GHz capable devices will show up in a really meaningful way until the second half of 2021. I’m also curious about access to the 6GHz band outside the U.S. I’ll be looking into that a bit more and post an update with what I discover.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. No, MetaGeek’s current Wi-Spy devices will not be able to scan the 6GHz band. We are working on new Wi-Spy designs to cover the new band.
