Post by borgward » Thu Aug 01, 2019 3:23 pm

What is the fastest speed any wireless ISP can provide? What is the farthest distance wireless Internet broadcast to? Does speed drop off due to distance?

Long-range Wi-Fi - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-range_Wi-Fi

The longest unamplified Wi-Fi link is a 304 km (188.897miles) link achieved by CISAR (Italian Center for Radio Activities).[9] New world record for long-range wireless broadband.
Long-range Wi-Fi is used for low-cost, unregulated point-to-point computer network connections, as an alternative to other fixed wireless, cellular networks or satellite Internet access.

Wi-Fi networks have a range that's limited by the frequency, transmission power, antenna type, the location they're used in, and the environment.[1] A typical wireless router in an indoor point-to-multipoint arrangement using 802.11n and a stock antenna might have a range of 50 metres (160 ft) or less. Outdoor point-to-point arrangements, through use of directional antennas, can be extended with many kilometers between stations.

Does wifi speed drop off with distance? - Apple Community

wifi signal decreases with the square of the distance travelled, other things (walls etc) will slow it down further.
