Expect the new 802.11ax Wi-Fi Standard to hit the market in 2019
Some tech firms are ahead of the game. ASUS, for example, has announced a new router that supports 802.11ax. Certain chips from Intel to be released this year will support the new standard. While we might see a few more compatible products announced, the majority won't be unveiled until the Wi-Fi Alliance issues final standards, and certification is more wide spread.
Besides running data at faster speeds than the current standard, 802.11ax is designed to improve internet connectivity in public areas where many different devices connect to a particular hotspot. These are usually found in hotels, ballparks, airports, restaurants and other similar locations.
