New antenna speeds up Wi-Fi by 200x.
Researchers in Singapore have developed a tiny antenna able to produce wireless speeds of 20-Gbits per second, which is 200 times faster than current Wi-Fi speeds.
The tiny device measures 1.6 x 1.2mm, which also makes it the smallest silicone based antenna to date. The antenna differs from previous antennas by being filled with a polymer instead of air, and the team says the technique is suitable for mass production.
I recently suggested that 5G wireless — a 1 gigabit connection provided directly by cell companies — is the key to breaking the cable monopoly, for both TV and internet. This antenna technology might be part of that.
