Tomversations: Episode 2 – Wi-Fi 6 and 6E

It’s time for the second episode of Tomversations! I’m excited for this one because we get to dive into a relatively new hot topic! The FCC opened up the 6 GHz spectrum for unlicensed devices on April 23. That’s great news for people that like having lots of available channels for devices to communicate.

However, the number of terms that are getting thrown around are confusing. What’s 802.11ax? Does that include the new spectrum? Is Wi-Fi 6E better than Wi-Fi 6? Should I just wait and hold out for Wi-Fi 7 at this point? And what does this all mean for my thermostat and HomeKit integrations?

Make sure to leave a comment here or on the video about your thoughts on the topic!
