Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 & 6700 will offer Wi-Fi 6E with true multi-gig speeds thanks to seven 160 MHz channels

Wi-Fi 6 is fantastic, but it is not quite as revolutionary in speeds as you might hope. For most scenarios, the best connection you are likely to achieve is a 2×2 on 80Mhz channels giving you a connection rate of 1200mbps. That is a far cry from the 4804 Mbps you will see printed on the side of many flagship Wi-Fi 6 router boxes. Wi-Fi 5 devices using 2×2 on 80Mhz, which is the standard connection nowadays, will connect at 866Mps. So the current range of Wi-Fi 6 devices offers a 39% increased connection speed, and during my reviews,...

I reviewed the Netatmo Smart Outdoor Camera (formerly Netatmo Presence) just over a year ago, and it has been one of the best surveillance cameras I have reviewed, and I still use it today.
