100 MHz of New Wi-Fi Spectrum Authorized at 5GHz

The Federal Communications Commission has moved to make 100 MHz of spectrum in the 5-GHz (5.150-5.250 GHz) band available for Wi-Fi or other uses. The move will increase the total amount of U.S. Wi-Fi spectrum by about 15 percent, some reckon. 

The rules adopted today remove the current restriction on indoor-only use and increase the permissible power.

That will  be useful for creation of Wi-Fi hot spots at such as airports and convention centers.

The move was expected.
