Some regions around the world suffer from poor internet connectivity and transfer speeds due to weak infrastructure. More technologies and applications are developed every day that depend on wireless connectivity and require faster data transfer.


Li-fi can be up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi with more bandwidth and speed. Simply attach a small device to your laptop or tablet, the device takes internet signals from a LED light, gifting you with a stable and ultrafast connection.

Li-Fi acts as an internet transmitter as it uses the visible light of the electromagnetic spectrum. Since light can not travel through walls, the Li-fi signals will be interrupted across multiple rooms, making Li-fi an extraordinary wi-fi companion that can take it to new frontiers- but not a replacement.
