That information is part of what makes something Wi-Fi Certified. You'll be able to associate "Wi-Fi 6" with a set list of supported features. If it's not Wi-Fi Certified, it cannot (I mean, people will do it anyway) be labeled with their logo or naming scheme.
Nothing is being "ditched." The Wi-Fi Alliance is just using another naming scheme for their certification program. 802.11whatever is still around, and will continue to be as new docs are ratified by the IEEE. People referring to the specific technology will still use the standard names.
To be honest, most consumers just saw something like AC500 anyway, so I'm not sure it was really needed.
Implications aside, I'm not sure I can disagree. VoIP is basically just another application of the internet, like the web and email. Even if it's actively replacing POTS/ISDN in some areas, it's still a different technology. If the web counts as an information service, why not VoIP? The P2P nature of the calls themselves? Is BitTorrent not an information service?
Any experienced telephony El Reggians with an opinion?
"None of them..."
An absurd comment, but the argument has already been stated.
I'm definitely tired of hearing "He's a kid, they're geniuses with computers!" though. Of course, that's being thrown on to Gen Z now as well. "I let my son fix it, he's good with computers" is usually an ominous warning of things to come.
They can copy your network SSID and create an "Evil Twin." Then spam you with deauth frames, and then spam you with broadcast advertisements carrying that SSID. I've done it at home for shits and giggles (to my own devices, obviously).
Someone mentioned the Wi-Fi Pineapple which has all of this built in. It's easy to do without one.
Protected Management Frames (802.11w) can protect against the deauth spam, but I'm not sure many home telco routers use that.
But yeah, I turned off auto-fill ages ago.
