Ro, 19 January 2022

The Wi-Fi standard will be able to utilize 320MHz channels, use 4K quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), multi-user resource unit (MRU) and will still work on the existing 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz frequencies.

The first devices with Wi-Fi 7 support will hit the market in 2023, says MediaTek. Those will be based on a draft specification though, since the standard itself won't be certified by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) until 2024.

Personally i would like lower latency than ultra super speeds. Wifi 6 is plenty fast already when paired with 1gbs fiber or 5g.
