France adopts 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi

Tuesday 7 December 2021 | 14:31 CET | News
The French telecom sector can now take advantage of the Wi-Fi 6E standard, after the recent publication of a government decision setting the technical conditions for placing Wi-Fi equipment in the new 6 GHz frequency band (5,945 to 6,425 MHz). This follows the draft document released earlier this year by national telecom authority Arcep. The move enables France to adopt EU decision 2021/1067, which opened up 500 MHz in the 6 GHz band for unlicensed use by Wi-Fi applications.
