AnyFi Networks claims to make WiFi a 4G technology
A company called AnyFi networks has a new technology that claims to have the capacity to turn WiFi network in a more high-density urban environment to a 4G type of network…seems fascinating, but is it possible?
When you come to think of it, the process seems very simple enough but at the same time, it’s creeping me out; well, the company has a sort of technology of which they would like to call “WiFi over IP” of which its technology takes the WiFi radio signals form certain devices like smartphone and the likes to route it over an IP connection.
The entire system would work like this—an ISP is set in a location where it has a lot of customers would provide modems or routers with AnyFi tech inside. As its subscribers go around town, their devices would somehow connect automatically to their ISPs network by piggybacking onto the unused bandwidth of subscribers of which whose wireless networks are in close range of the mobile device.
Basically, the whole point of this is that they steal bandwidths that are unused from other subscribers. So, the whole point of this technology is stealing, would that be it? Well, it really does sound creepy
