Facebook is teaming up with Qualcomm to work on high-speed wireless internet


One of Facebook's internet connectivity schemes is called Terragraph. It's a wireless technology that, as I mentioned here last week, has had trouble getting off the ground in San Jose. Anyway, the project will now use 60GHz technology from Qualcomm.

A Qualcomm spokesperson described it as a solution for both rural areas and urban areas that simply have spotty Wi-Fi in certain regions. Field tests are set to begin in the middle of next year, but there’s no word on when the Terragraph Project will actually go live.
