Qualcomm Inc. said that telecommunications service providers need to jump on new technology coming to Wi-Fi or risk losing the chance to exploit the flood of data being created by their customers.

The company is offering new chips that will enable Wi-Fi 6 connections in new wireless networking gear for homes and businesses. The technology allows more connections simultaneously and access to a broader range of radio frequencies, which enables faster data transmission.
