Wi-Fi just got faster
Whilst Australia is still coming to grips with Wi-Fi 5 , the latest iPhone 11 ships with Wi-Fi 6.
Fortunately the Wi-Fi Alliance switched to simpler generation naming (from names like IEEE 802.11ax).
But what should you expect from Wi-Fi 6?
Wi-Fi 6 has technologies to address the issues when putting multiple of Wi-Fi devices onto a single network. It allows routers to communicate with more devices and send to multiple devices in the same broadcast.
According to Netgear-:
You may not know it...
but there's a good chance the Wi-Fi running throughout your home is outdated. Your router is actually the culprit. While it use to be able to deliver fast internet to your laptop and smartphone, it wasn’t built to handle the demand of all the smart devices, consoles, tablets, 4K TV’s, thermostats, and more vying for bandwidth today.
You deserve to get what you're paying for and should have a WiFi network that's built to handle the devices of today and tomorrow.

Improved battery life
When using Wi-Fi 6 devices can communicate differently with a router - they can plan, which reduces the load when having antennas constantly powered in search of signals.
This will benefit the smaller, lower powered devices. Laptops etc need a constant internet access.
A new security protocol called WPA3 makes it harder for hackers to gain access by constantly guessing passwords. This protocol also makes data less useful if hackers do get hold of it.
For a Wi-Fi 6 device to receive certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance, WPA3 is required - making your devices more secure as well.
