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.

Great could this mean cheaper internet bills?

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?

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."
Peak Download 100 Mbit/s
Peak Upload 50 Mbit/s
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'
