    Default New Super Wi-Fi Standard Closer to Reality



    The IEEE 802.22 standard has finally been published by the IEEE which means it is official. And with its officialness, 22 Mbps per channel downloads up to 100km from the transmitter are that much closer to becoming an everyday reality.

    The hope for the new standard is that it will provide broadband access to rural regions and regions that have been long ignored by telecom infrastructure across the world. The new standard for Wireless Regional Area Networks (WRANS) utilizes the same space of bandwidth previously used for analog television broadcasts.

    The new "Super" Wi-Fi as some are branding it, is currently only available in the Houston area thanks to Rice University Researchers. Hopefully the roll out of this new wireless broadband tech speeds up a bit, the FCC approved it nearly a year ago and Houston is the only thing we have to show for it.

    So what does this mean exactly? If I have a router at home i can connect to it with my iPhone from across town and use data that way?

    If that's the case then what would be the need for a data plan through a wireless provider if WiFi signals can reach clear across an entire city?

    I believe it would be a way to use the already existing old analog tv signal a new use probably subscription based and hardware required to broadcast the wifi signal, much like plugging the coaxial into a modem then router.

    Well in that case I don't see how it would lower Internet service prices. If anything I would assume that it would be offered as an add-on package with its ability to reach farther than traditional WiFi.

    It's saying the standard for rural areas is 20mbps areas that have never had internet or lie outside main cities I believe unless I totally forget what rural means at 2:38am

    4G is still being developed. I think you mean LTE, the only place that has 4G is the Isle of Man because that is where all the mobile standards are tested.

    LTE is 3.7G it is a lot slow than 4G and the signal is not as strong.

    Since 4G is really 4th Generation, you're saying there's a 3.7th generation? LOL

    LTE, WiMax, etc...A standard would be nice. Tired of all these fragmented phones.

    When it comes to wireless service, there is a 3.7G. The people that set the bar for the "G's" have already defined what the speeds have to be, to be considered 4G. Sadly, the carriers here in the states have simply ignored them and touted their own technologies as 4G. So now there is confusion as to what exactly is what. From what I understand, there is no 4G in America, yet.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Read: 3GPP Long Term Evolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Then read: 4G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Taken from the 4G page "The pre-4G technology 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) is often branded "4G", but the first LTE release does not fully comply with the IMT-Advanced requirements."

    LTE Speed:
    Peak Download 100 Mbit/s
    Peak Upload 50 Mbit/s

    4G Speed:
    Peak Download 1 Gbit/s
    Peak Upload 500 Mbit/s

    Both were taken form the 4G page (The second one I linked)


    EDIT: The standards are set by the 'International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector'
