South Korean telco KT will launch entry-level Wi-Fi 6 access points next month, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

KT is strengthening its Wi-Fi line-up. The telco first launched its high-end Wi-Fi 6 access points last year. It also launched a Wi-Fi repeater aimed at the home to widen in-door converge earlier this month. 

The repeater, dubbed Wi-Fi Buddy, comes with an easy mesh feature that allows handsets to be connected to either one of the two Wi-Fi routers that have the best connection.

The new entry-level Wi-Fi 6 access points will have the same number of antennas as the Wi-Fi 5 version but will have double the data transfer rate. 

KT’s Wi-Fi 5 access point current offers 867Mbps with two antennas. Meanwhile, its premium Wi-Fi 6 access point has four antennas and boast of data transfer rate of 2.4Gbps. 

Wi-Fi 6 comes with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology that allows simultaneous data transfers to multiple handsets. Wi-Fi 5 could only send data to one handset at a time.

OFDMA can also allocates data resources depending on each handset's need.
