Default Future Wifi at 900Mhz (Sept 2013)

And now entering the 900Mhz spectrum, wifi with an IP, as it ran out of room in the 2.4Ghz spectrum, got tired of dealing with extra repeaters in the 5.8Ghz spectrum and would really love that larger range so you can sip margaritas out back by the pool without worrying about adding a second repeater.

WiFi is preparing to ride 900 MHz spectrum bands in an effort to compete in cost and range with a fragmented set of options in home and building automation and the Internet of Things. Chips and systems using the upcoming IEEE 802.11ah standard are expected to hit the market starting in 2015.
The spec aims to support a range of options from throughput of 150 Kbits/s with a 1 MHz band to as much as 40 Mbits/s over an 8 MHz band. Distances supported could be about 50 percent longer than those of the streamlined 802.11n products now targeting the sector with throughput up to 72 Mbits/s.
As many as a dozen 900 MHz protocols are now crowded into the space of building and home control networks. "That's the biggest problem -- you need separate hubs or base stations for each of them, and that means extra costs, and if you add IP to these devices there are more costs," he said.
Hi Diddly Ho, Good Neighborino
