If you are a frequent user of WiFi on your device you know that it can be frustrating at times. Qualcomm may be the first to do something about that problem.
A new technology,known as "MU-MIMO," which stands for "multi-user, multiple input, multiple output" will attempt to allow networks to transmit data to multiple groups of users.
Currently, WiFi networks can only serve one device at a time.
When both the network and its users are employing the technology, Qualcomm claims it will boost speeds by two to three times.
Qualcomm plans to start using the technology within the next few months.
