The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will launch an effort aimed at boosting airport WiFi speeds in February. The FCC chairman announced at the mega Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that it will free more unlicensed radio spectrum for use by airport Wifi service providers. The FCC plans to release about 195 megahertz of spectrum in the 5 gigahertz band, thereby boosting speeds by up to 35 percent. This will be the largest block of unlicensed spectrum freed by the FCC since 2003.
Increased spectrum will not only boost Wifi speeds at airports but also at convention centers and large conference gatherings.
