Super Wi-Fi was designed by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). It uses a lower frequency band to cover more ground and easily cross through the wooden and concrete structures of residential and commercial buildings.

Techopedia Explains Super Wi-Fi

Super Wi-Fi was conceived by the FCC to remove the limitations of Wi-Fi communication technology by changing the frequency band from a high frequency to a low frequency band composed of white spaces, which are commonly used for television broadcasting services.

Super Wi-Fi powered devices work on the IEEE 802.22 standard, allowing it to propagate signals on UHV and UHF bands within a cell size of approximately 60 miles from the point of origin at speeds of up to 22 Mpbs.
