Have you heard of Lifi? It is 100 times better than Wifi!

Lifi is an new internet connection made by a man named Harald Haas at the University of Edinburgh. It has rumors that it works 100 times better Wifi. If you didn’t know, the fastest Wifi connection you can have is up to 1000 Mbps, so if you times that by 100 you will have 100,000 Mbps. The science group has tested it out in Tallin and Estonia. Some reviews from the people were that as soon as they click on something it instantly came up. The special thing that separates Lifi from Wifi is that it uses LED lights to give off the connection. That is also what makes it so secure because when you install it, the LED lights can only stay in that room. That way you can prevent hackers from hacking your network. It is not out yet because they still have a few kinks to work out, such as how are they going to install it in the house are they going to charge for each room in the house, or for the whole house. The other problem is how much is they are going to charge for the connection. Down below is an picture that shows you how the LED lights are going to work.

  1. This is a really interesting idea! I can’t believe that you could transmit data like that using LEDs… I wonder how that works.

    Do you have any links to good articles about this? How and from where did you learn about it?
