Forget wifi, this new technology will make your home broadband 100 times FASTER
THE latest internet technology can beam your data using the power of light and is on the verge of revolutionising the ways we surf the world wide web.

Sick of sluggish broadband speeds? Li-Fi could be the answer.

The cutting-edge new technology is able to fire data around your home at blistering speeds.

Until now the new technology – dubbed Li-Fi – has only ever been tested in a controlled lab environment but scientists have recently installed it in the real world and the results are astonishing.

During trials in Estonia, speeds of over 1GB per second were recorded, which is around 100 times faster than current home wifi speeds.

"We are doing a few pilot projects within different industries where we can utilise the VLC (visible light communication) technology," Deepak Solanki, CEO of Estonian tech company, Velmenni, told IBTimes UK.

"Currently we have designed a smart lighting solution for an industrial environment where the data communication is done through light.

"We are also doing a pilot project with a private client where we are setting up a Li-Fi network to access the Internet in their office space.”

Li-Fi was first created in 2011 by Harald Haas from the University of Edinburgh and as well as being fast it's also safer and much more reliable than traditional wifi connections.

The technology uses Visible Light Communication (VLC), which basically works like an incredibly advanced form of Morse code.

The light it produces is so fast that it can't be seen by the naked eye.
Unfortunately this new technology probably won't be heading to your home anytime soon.

Our homes, offices, and coffee shops have already been fitted with infrastructure to provide wifi and ripping all of this out to replace it with Li-Fi technology isn’t particularly cost effective.

The devices we use would also have to Li-Fi enabled and until it becomes more mainstream we're guessing tech companies will be sticking firmly with Wi-Fi.

Interesting...but they fail to mention that to get those speeds you need to have a really fast connection to the building first!

I'm pretty sure you can't turn 25MB/sec into 1GB/sec...I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

Another thing is...it is based on light, so every connection relies on line of sight. Currently, my wi-fi router sits in one place in the house and works fine through walls and upstairs or downstairs makes little or no difference.
