The short answer is ‘No.’ The long answer is ‘Not yet.’ Ben Lovejoy explains what Wi-Fi 6 is but not why it doesn’t mean anything yet.
The previous generation, supported by most of today’s devices, was known as 802.11ac. The latest generation is officially 802.11ax — but the Wi-Fi Alliance last year recognized that this was all too confusing, so decided the consumer-facing name would instead be Wi-Fi 6.
It’s faster. But you need a Wi-Fi 6 router, and a device that can handle Wi-Fi 6 (new iPhones do), but as it is with 5G, it doesn’t matter much. Yet. The internet itself isn’t that fast.
