That's the point. So there's less interference between installations and far fewer of your neighbors can put up a dish or yagi and tap into your network.

7Gbps will be on demand when the next generation HDTV is out. 60GHz band will like serve a limited range like the article has mentioned.

The article is talking about 80Mhz band. Will this overlap the current 20mhz bands of WiFi?

Actually its about 16 dB/km so for short range its not really a big issue. There are companies doing P2P links for backhaul at 60Ghz over .5 to 1 km distances today. The line of site issues are more challenging at 60 GHz.

The .11ad folks hope to get 6-7 Gbits/second out of the technology

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
