The network is being installed in 28 NFL stadiums this year--not just for sporting fanatics but also to use the locations for real-time, on-site multiplayer game venues. Verizon also rolled out its millimeter-wave $50 home service which should provide download speeds of 300Mbps. The higher speed would have helped as people hunkered down when the average internet speeds took a beating because everyone was online. To relieve the strain, a new wave of Wi-Fi 6 routers is not just faster but also more efficient for sharing bandwidth across all your home devices. To handle all of your network-ready devices, all of the major router producers put their best face forward. Netgear rolled out its Nighthawk RAXE500 Wi-Fi 6e unit that handles up to 12 separate streams while Asus unveiled its ROG Rapture gaming friendly unit. Linksys’ new mesh unit covers up to 3,000 sq. ft. and supports Wi-Fi 6e for $499. Wi-Fi 6 provides bandwidth for all of your devices – smartphones, computers, game consoles, the works without dropping a byte.
