Wi-Fi's new doping scandal

Next generation home networking could provide 100mbps.

Might as well be steroids. Networking companies are proposing a next-generation Wi-Fi standard that will provide data transfer rates of about 100 mbps. The completed standard is expected in late 2006 or 2007.

Today's fast Wi-Fi (that'd be the "g" version, not the 802.11b that's on my laptop) has specs that allow up to 54mbps, but usually provide about half that.
