I think the author tried to say "7GHz" as available unlicensed bandwidth in 60GHz.

60 GHz? going back a bit (25 years) when we were looking into building a mm-wave radar. I seem to remember there's a strong absorption band there due to oxygen, if it's not already raining! Hope they don't intend to go through more than a few feet of air at 40-60 dB/m...

@ t.alex: McFarland said the .11ac 5 GHz spec offering 1 Gbit/s will support nexisting Wi-Fi ranges. @ Great-Terry: I expect Msoft and its partners have their hands full right now, and I want to tell more of this story as soon as I can.

It is interesting to see WiFi running at such high frequency - 60GHz! I think it is only good for steaming video signal from your TV to speaker, but you just can't walk out the room as the signal will be totally dead! BTW, will there be any trouble for Microsoft to support 4 different processors with its Window 8?

60 GHz carrier, 7 Gbps? That is seriously off the hook. Will the chip cost 3 bucks, so the router retails for $50 or $60? Probably not anytime soon...but still, this is very cool stuff.
