What is WiFi 6?
The short answer is that it’s the next generation of WiFi technology. It will connect you to the internet – at faster speeds than other WiFi routers – and also brings in some new tech that will improve your online experience. If your home or office hosts a large number of devices (including personal electronics, smart home devices, wifi enabled equipment, VR devices, and more), a WiFi 6 router will help reduce congestion and improve your experience.
How fast is WiFi 6?
WiFi 6 can deliver 9.6 Gbps (nearly three times the 3.5 Gbps recorded on WiFi 5). Realistically, both of these speeds exceed what one device will need… but WiFi 6 allows you to split your speed reliably over a wide range of devices in your home or office. And that improved network is where WiFi 6 really shines.
What is the difference between WiFi 5 and Wifi 6?
With WiFi 6, you’ll double your bandwidth – creating a faster uninterrupted connection to your router.
In addition to that, WiFi 6 optimizes the delivery of your data so you’ll enjoy a better connection across your devices.
WiFi 6 uses OFDMA to improve your data delivery. Imagine your Wifi connection as a road full of delivery trucks running between your router and your devices. WiFi 5 was able to deliver one parcel to one device. WiFi 6 loads up each truck with multiple parcels that will be delivered to multiple devices at the same time. What does this mean for you? A smoother, more efficient experience for uploads and downloads.
How many devices can I connect to WiFi 6?
WiFi 6 uses new tech that lets the router communicate seamlessly with many devices at once – and keeps that conversation going to ensure a strong uninterrupted signal.
8 x 8 MU-MIMO introduces more than eight streams that work for both uploads and downloads – so there’s more than enough bandwidth for everyone in your home or office.
Not all WiFi 6 Routers Are Created Equal
In the same way that 5G will revolutionize mobile networks with unprecedented speed, reliability, etc. etc. WiFi 6 is set to surpass all existing expectations of what can be done at home or at work.

What is Wi-Fi 6E?
Simply put, Wi-Fi 6E means Wi-Fi 6 extended to the 6 GHz band. Unlike the crowded 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, the wide-open 6 GHz spectrum is occupied only by efficient Wi-Fi 6 connections, removing frustrations currently caused by overcrowding on many WiFi networks. Wi-Fi 6E utilizes the capabilities of 6 GHz to enable high-bandwidth applications that require faster data throughput such as high-definition video streaming and virtual reality, as well as lower latency connectivity for online gaming applications.
