Microsoft’s plan to bring faster Wi-Fi includes teaming up with D-Link

Microsoft and D-Link are joining forces in an effort to bring faster Super Wi-Fi to rural areas worldwide.

The question is, “What is Super Wi-Fi?”

Dubbed “Super Wi-Fi”, the wireless infrastructure is set to be based on the 802.11af protocol, and will take advantage of unused bandwidth in the lower-frequency white spaces between television channel frequencies where signals travel further than at higher frequencies.

Keep in mind, this isn’t the first time Microsoft has done something like this. In 2015 Microsoft used this same technology to assist with disaster relief in the Philippines and to deliver internet to Koforidua Polytechnic, a remote college in Ghana, for as low as 2 Ghanaian cedi ($0.61) a day.

A  pilot for Super Wi-Fi is set to begin in an undisclosed US State, then expand to three additional countries.

Good on ya, Microsoft!
