At CES in Las Vegas, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski announced an effort to improve WiFi speeds and reduce congestion. The FCC will take the first steps next month to open up to 195 MHz of spectrum in the 5 GHz band, the largest block of unlicensed spectrum to be made available for expansion of WiFi since 2003. The move is intended to increase and free up the unlicensed spectrum available for ultra-high-speed, high-capacity WiFi - known as "Gigabit WiFi" - by up to 35%.
