“Long” Wi-Fi exists – 13 years ago it was caught from several hundred kilometers

On June 18, 2007, a Wi-Fi communication distance record was set, which has not been surpassed (in range) so far. The experiment was conducted in Venezuela.

Ermanno Pietrosemoli, president of the Latin American network association Escuela Latinoamerica de Redes, managed to organize a wireless connection between the two nodes, located at a distance of 382 kilometers from each other. Two mountains in the Venezuelan Andes were chosen to house the antennas. Equipment from Intel and Linksys was used. And at this distance, a stable connection of 3 Mbit / s was provided. According to Ermanno, he is conducting all his experiments to promote Wi-Fi technology in small cities in developing countries.
