Do you simply say each letter or does the pronunciation sound like "you-knee"?
You got it! "You-Knee" is the Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) frequency band used by the 802.11a Wireless LAN standard. The UNII band is actually three separate bands: lower (5.15-5.25 GHz), middle (5.25-5.35 GHz), and upper (5.725-5.825). The band is split like this because each part has different power requirements, intended for indoor, indoor/outdoor, and outdoor use.
