Li-Fi 100 Times Faster Than Wi-Fi

Li-Fi Wi-Fi Wireless Internet

Li-Fi a new type of wireless internet that is 100 times faster than the usual Wi-Fi has developed by Prof Harald Hass. The company called Velmenni has tested the speed and currently trialling it in offices.

LiFI has proved capable of sending data at speeds of up to 1GBps, around 100 times faster than most current Wi-Fi connections.

This high speed wireless network communication technology similar to Wi-Fi was developed by professor Harld Hass in 2011. By using Visible Light Communication (VLC)  , data is sent between networks by LED lights that flicker incredibly fast. The dramatically increased speeds make it a big improvement on curret technology for some applications as well. The technology has one major limitation as it relies on visible light to work, it can't pass through walls.
