The 25-year journey of Internet Explorer is coming to an end

 The 25-year journey of Internet Explorer is coming to an end

We should all be using Internet Explorer, a product of Microsoft. The 25-year journey of Internet Explorer, the most used search browser in the early stages of the Internet, is now coming to a complete halt.

Everyone has their own experience in using it. However, the company has made an unpleasant decision to shut it down due to the recent loss of users due to the popularity of other browsers.

Microsoft will stop supporting it from August 17, 2021. According to Microsoft, Microsoft 365 App & Services will no longer provide services to Internet Explorer from next year.

As an alternative, the company has been promoting Microsoft Edge for the past few years. Which is now established as the world's second-largest web browser.

In 2015, the company created Microsoft Edge through the open-source Chromium for Google Chrome. Which has many features compared to Internet Explorer. It is also user friendly.

Google prepares for 6 GHz WiFi test

Google has asked the US government for permission to test the GHz spectrum for high-speed Wi-Fi. The company has sought permission from various state governments to test the technology, which is seen as a new generation of WiFi technology.

Google is preparing to test it in major US cities in the first phase. The company has also sought permission from the government to test the six GHz WiFi, which is expected to affect other WiFi signals.

This technology will run at twice the speed of WiFi currently available. Similarly, the coverage area of ​​WiFi will also be more.

Currently, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band WiFi is in vogue in the global environment. Five GHz WiFi has just come into use in Nepal. After some time, a big change is appearing in WiFi.

With two decades of major upgrades to WiFi, this will change

After some time, a big change is appearing in WiFi. The US Federal Communications Commission has announced that it will open a plot of 6 GHz spectrum for use without a license.

Such a change would allow the user to broadcast the router above the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. So your router will have more open-air routes to broadcast WiFi signals.

Next year when this new spectrum will be officially opened for business, users' devices will run faster, connections will be more reliable than the previous generation.

Since the Federal Communications Commission made provision for Wi-Fi in 1989, the decision will add a wide spectrum. This new spectrum has further increased the amount of space available for routers and other devices. As a result, any device will have more bandwidth and less interferer.

"This is the biggest decision in the history of WiFi spectrum in twenty years," said Kevin Robinson, marketing leader of the WiFi Alliance, an industry group that oversees the implementation of WiFi.

By the end of 2020, the devices are expected to support 6 GHz WiFi. Therefore, its implementation is not far away. When it arrives, it will be branded as WiFi Six E.

How can this help our weak WiFi?

If your device has trouble connecting to the WiFi network, it may be due to spectrum congestion. When you connect multiple devices with the same band frequency, the network drops on some devices.

If you see many WiFi networks in your area, now consider for yourself why your connection is slowing down. The reason is simple, your computer is competing with many signals.

6 GHz can solve this problem for you. This allows your router to accommodate so many new airwaves that the signals of the WiFi channels never overlap like they do now.

This new spectrum has enough rooms for a maximum of seven WiFi streams. All streams can be broadcast at GHz without interruption without using the previous spectrum.

FCC is opening a 1200 MHz spectrum in the 6 GHz band. For the past two decades, WiFi has been operating in 400 spectra. Within that limited space, all available channels were being split.

Within the 6 GHz band, each channel is expected to be 160 MHz in size. But currently available space can only accommodate two channels of this size.

6 GHz WiFi

Not everyone knows how WiFi works. WiFi works by transmitting airwaves. The airwaves are open to everyone's use.

Today, it operates in two bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Now the third band 6 GHz has been added.

Depending on the band's number, their features also vary. 2.4 GHz flows very fast and 6 GHz provides fast data.

It does not matter what specific frequency is used. The important thing is the space of the available airwave.

It has a lot of 6 GHz space. The space of the new band is more than the overall WiFi space available before.
