Wi-Fi, also, WiFi, Wi-fi or wifi, is a brand originally licensed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to describe the underlying technology of wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. Wi-Fi was developed to be used for mobile computing devices, such as laptops, in LANs, but is now increasingly used for more applications, including Internet and VoIP phone access, gaming, and basic connectivity of consumer electronics such as televisions and DVD players, or digital cameras.
Since Wi-Fi first appeared in smartphones ten years ago, owners and managers of public places like hospitals, university campuses, and shopping malls have hoped that Wi-Fi would offer a replacement for cell service, especially in areas that are not well-covered by the major carriers. Until recently, there was no universal, multi-operator coverage solution.
