Is Li-Fi the Future of the Internet?

Li-fi was invented in 2011 by Harald Haas from the University of Edinburgh. He proved that light could transmit data faster than wi-fi.

Unlike wi-fi which relies on radio waves, li-fi relies on light. So, in a classroom that has plenty of light, there would be a fast internet connection available to all students. With advances in technology current school wifi solutions are not enough to meet the internet demands of students and staff. Li-fi has the potential of being a lot faster than traditional wi-fi connections. 

Does li-fi represent the future of the internet?
