  1. The first image is rubbish. 1) WiFi transmits @ 2.4 Ghz. The physical wavelength at that frequency is 12.5 cm (4.9 inches for those who don’t use the metric system yet). That image shows them about 6 foot tall!
    2) Radio waves are generally polarised either horizontally or vertically (look at any roof-top TV antenna).. Most WiFi is vertical as this best suits omni-directional radiation patterns. The first image shows both vertical AND horizontal…

  2. My experience as a user is that WiFi doesn’t travel as far or as consistently as the images portray. I am uncertain why that is. Could the cost of transmission be a factor?

  3. Add to it all that pixs 1 & 2 are not DC;height restriction do no allow for those buildings; Central Park-NYC??

  4. It would be kind of cool to see the impact of 802.11AC, where in theory, the antenna changes direction to follow the connected devices. In effect, we at least imagine that the signal bends to follow you, sort of like the eyes in the painting in the art museum. Just a thought….

  5. Just wait for wifi to be the new asbestos…. Government, “we didnt know”
    We are all baking, enjoy it now.
