802.11ax is already available in routers, we just need device support to happen.

The biggest issue for 802.11ay, or 60GHz, is going to be distance and wall penetration meaning you will require more APs to cover the same space and increasing costs beyond just having the latest and greatest.

What's the difference between now, and the predicted June 2020 date for IEEE Std P802.11ax?

As far as I can tell, none. I assume some vendors jumped the gun as the spec has been approved for a while but we still are lacking device support. I have yet to see a cell phone or laptop with AX WiFi.

Besides Predicted is never 100%. It could be early or late. I think AX just hit earlier than expected.
