Wireless Internet Focus on Innovation in Spectrum Technology for Unlicensed Deployment Act or the WIFI STUDy Act

This bill requires the Government Accountability Office to study: (1) the role of unlicensed spectrum in the development of the proliferation of Internet-connected devices and in managing Internet protocol traffic on licensed wireless networks, (2) the economic benefits that WiFi provides in assisting with Internet traffic management, and (3) the potential avenues and barriers to broad deployment of gigabit WiFi service in spectrum bands below 6 gigahertz at a scale that allows for rapid expanded use of new consumer devices.
