T-rays are a new form of wireless data transmission in the terahertz band, which have recently been tested in Japan. The data rate is 20 times higher than the best commonly used wi-fi standard and could see a transfer rate of 100Gb/second. This is fifteen times higher than the best transmission device currently under development. At the moment, T-rays only have a range of 10 metres and remain unregulated by telecommunications companies.

At the end of the article, it says, '...by telecommunications companies'. Why would it be regulated by the telecoms rather than the governments or international conventions? The present entry was digested from an article published at http://thznetwork.net/index.php/archives/1549. There it says, 'Lying between microwave and far-infrared, it’s currently an unregulated part of the spectrum'. No mention of telecoms, which is only to be expected. My suggestion is to remove the mention of telecoms in the sentence quoted above. Thanks! Sergei
