Analysts say Starry’s 802.11ax is a far cheaper fixed wireless solution than 5G

The IEEE/WiFi community may have failed to insert itself into the heart of the 5G standards process, as some had hoped, but it has an ambitious roadmap which, in some ways, mirrors that of 3GPP. When 5G is considered as a broader platform than just the 3GPP radio, it is sure that WiFi will play an important role. The forthcoming 802.11ax standard, for instance, will vye with 5G New Radio as the best wireless system for environments with very dense levels of devices. However, high profile start-up Starry is using 11ax to challenge 5G on another front, fixed wireless. Starry says its 11ax-based fixed wireless service is more cost effective than a 5G NR fixed wireless service, of the kind…
