Archos PicoWAN to cover the world with cheap bandwidth for IoT

Posted by Charbax – October 7, 2015

Archos unveils their plan to cover the world with cheap bandwidth for the Internet of Things using PicoWAN, Archos's new ultra-low-cost long range IoT bandwidth adapter. People will get them for free by June 2016, to install in their own homes, and each PicoWAN has up to kilometers of range bandwidth for IoT devices into every neighborhood, worldwide. Archos estimates that 200 thousand of these units can cover the whole of Europe with connectivity for IoT.

- Is it on unlicensed 700mhz TV white spaces?

- Is there not enough bandwidth to also support a worldwide free broadband network for Smartphones and Tablets too?

- This is the future! I video-blogged FON wifi enthusiastically in last 10 years and their lack of range has been disappointing. As FON, anyone sharing bandwidth from their home should not only share 50% in revenue but also they should roam the world for free.

I possibly think it would be better for Archos PicoWAN to somehow provide free connectivity for everyone, free connectivity for every IoT device around the world, yet each device should be registered so they cannot use up all available bandwidth, some kind of throttling maybe is required within PicoWAN. Unlocking extra bandwidth should be possible for devices that need more bandwidth, but only if the bandwidth is available.
