Wi-Fi Spectrum May Soon Be Overloaded

Have you ever noticed your Internet speeds slowing down when you’re in a crowded office or trying to stream a movie at a peak time like 8 p.m. on a weeknight? You’re likely experiencing Wi-Fi congestion—caused by the huge growth in Wi-Fi traffic around the country.   

The World Now Has More Mobile Devices than People

Wi-Fi is everywhere. Cisco predicts that by 2017, Wi-Fi devices will power a majority of all Internet traffic. All of the devices you and your family use every day rely on Wi-Fi—and those demands are only increasing. And with the “Internet of Things,” machines will need more and more of it to communicate with each other. But this growth may mean that getting on the Internet through your Wi-Fi connections will soon be like trying to drive in rush hour traffic on too narrow a road—frustrating and slow-moving.   

How Can WifiForward Help?

WifiForward wants to bust this bottleneck by freeing up more airwaves for Wi-Fi, using the “unlicensed” spectrum bands—the parts of public airwaves that are not auctioned off for exclusive use—and by making the most efficient and effective use of the airwaves we already have. We are a group of like-minded companies, organizations and public sector institutions who believe that Wi-Fi is critical to the way we live and work today. Indeed, studies have confirmed that Wi-Fi already contributes close to $100 billion each year to the U.S. economy.
