The company has sought government approval to experiment with the technology Wi-Fi next-generation in dozens of states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.
The plan is to "conduct radio experiments in and near their zone 6GHz (5650 MHz - 7125 MHz) ”in selected cities in each of these states. THE Google calls for one or two cities in each state except California, where it plans to conduct tests in seven cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
"THE Google suggests conducting experimental propagation tests in their area 6GHz for the production of technical information related to the usefulness of these frequencies for the provision of reliable broadband connections ", the company states.
The request came when the FCC opened a spectrum track in their belt 6GHz for unlicensed uses in April. Some companies have expressed concern that existing infrastructure may be affected, and Google promises that its tests will be performed "without harmful interference to other authorized users".
New technology is expected to offer faster internet speeds by more than doubling its available frequencies Wi-Fi, but do not hope to see anything too soon. THE Google asked for 24 months to play with their networks 6GHz.
It is not clear why the Google asks permission to experiment with their belt 6GHz, but since the company is already involved in other internet services with Fiber, Nest and Stadia, it certainly has every incentive to improve its standards Wi-Fi.
