"Wi-Fi HaLow's extended range means that at home you'll be able to reliably connect devices anywhere in your house — or even outside in the back garden, garage or driveway — without the coverage hassles of today's
typical home Wi-Fi networks," Mr Terry says."

Hey Chris . I would say this might be a bit of Trumps "False News"

Is it too good to be true . Hope not.
Radio waves come with built in properties .
The higher you go in frequency the less distance the signal travels.
The less you put out in power the less distance the signal travels.

Traditional wiFi uses 2.4 GHz I think so the come down in frequency is a definite plus . The longer wave ,two and a half times longer, will definitely travel further but phone signals in buildings are notoriously finiky. Cutting the power is a very noticeable change in reception distance .

Great to see its Australian though.

Wi-Fi HaLow — pronounced "halo" — reaches up to one kilometre yet demands only one per cent of the power consumed by traditional Wi-Fi chips.

Cisco will produce the first equipment based on Morse Micro's HaLow chips, which is expected to hit the shelves in 18 months. HaLow-enabled devices will initially focus on industrial and agricultural applications but will also find their way into smart cities and eventual smart homes by 2020, says Morse Micro co-founder Andrew Terry.

"Wi-Fi HaLow's extended range means that at home you'll be able to reliably connect devices anywhere in your house — or even outside in the back garden, garage or driveway — without the coverage hassles of today's typical home Wi-Fi networks," Mr Terry says.
"Meanwhile HaLow's low power requirements will allow for battery lives measured in months rather than hours, along with the potential for devices to run on harvested energy like solar."

Wi-Fi HaLow operates on the unlicensed 915 MHz band, avoiding the 900 MHz spectrum allocated to mobile broadband networks, and offers data speeds of around 10 megabits per second. It sacrifices the higher speeds of traditional Wi-Fi standards in favour of power efficiency, reach and the ability to penetrate buildings, similar to mobile phone signals.

HaLow chips will also be five times smaller and cheaper than traditional Wi-Fi chips, making the technology a good fit for smart appliances. HaLow devices can also conserve power by periodically waking and reporting back to base, allowing for energy-efficient wide area sensor networks.

Hmmmm
I'm not excited about this. It appears to be aimed at the IoT as oppossed to local Home/Office connections.A bandwidth of 10MB is not very fast, but is above US ADSL minimums (usually 3 or 6 MB).
