A new Wi-Fi standard is being rolled out in Singapore to allow more devices to be connected to a home or office network without slowdowns. The new standard also promises faster response from connected autonomous robots.

Sector regulator Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) says that it will allocate new airwaves in the 6GHz band to support the deployment of the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard by the third quarter of 2023.
