ON 16th February 2023 the Plenary of the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) announced the classification of the frequency segment of 5925-6425 MHz as free spectrum, which will allow its use by the general public without the need for a concession or authorization from the Institute.
The 500 MHz classified will allow for the provision of new services with the technology known as WiFi-6E in Mexico.
It is important to note that the 5925-6425 MHz segment is part of the 6 GHz band in which the WiFi-6E standard operates and the evolution to WiFi-7, which will allow for much faster internet access connections, with transmission channels of greater capacity and lower latency than those obtained with previous versions of these technologies
The operating conditions of this license-free spectrum can be used for low-power systems indoors and very low-power systems both indoors and outdoors. However determination on its outdoor use is yet to be determined.
