    Fascinating new technology here, it's nice to see Apple at least looking at it for the iPhone.

    Here's a great TED talk description/demo.

    That's all very nice, but the average American can't even take full advantage of 802.11n Wi-Fi due to slow broadband speeds, much less 802.11ac.

    Li-Fi speeds are still only in our imaginations.

    Single user speed isn't the exciting part.

    If hardware cost isn't to high this is extremely exciting. Wifi range and congestion is still a major issue in the commercial space. No longer do you have to do router placement optimization, which still leads to unreliable/dead spots. Good example of this are the dungeonous basements of University buildings. Instead a Li-Fi capable light in every room gives everyone a fast and perfectly reliable connection.
