Coffee shop wi-fi is almost always pathetic. But thanks to a new Wi-Fi technology from Qualcomm, that may all be about to change. One of the reasons they suck is because they are only able to take care of one device at a time. With more people cramming into a network, it gets more congested. Hence: slow internet for all you hipsters.

Qualcomm is announcing a new technology that allows routers to service multiple users simultaneously. It is called "Multi user, multiple input, multiple output" - or MU-MIMO. The new method allows the network to adapt to more users as they come. This may potentially triple the current Wi-Fi speeds at busy hotspots.
