In a bid to boost the growth of IoT devices and make affordable broadband available to more consumers, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has unanimously agreed to open up 1,200 MHz of spectrum on the 6 GHz band for unlicensed wireless. FCC chairman Ajit Pai and other commissioners mentioned the new demands on Wi-Fi due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with the education, work, and other sectors moving online since mid-March.
