some say /waifai/ some /waifee/ others /weefee/ grin I think the first is the correct though I've heard a good number of people use the second and very few use the third.

It's WAIFAI.

Instead of Wi, the first 2 letters should be pronounced as Y.

In English speaking countries Wi-Fi is pronounced /
ˈwaɪ.faɪ/ - it rhymes with Hi-Fi, and tie dye, and my
pie. Trade name developed for the Wireless Ethernet
Compatibility Alliance (later Wi-Fi Alliance), after hi-fi
(“high fidelity”). Pronunciation : (UK, US) IPA(key): /
ˈwaɪ.faɪ/

Does it make sense, if you pronouns it WiF i? It doesn't. The Capital letter shouldn't be left out.

That was why I quoted and still emphasised on it with the laugh emoji for others to know it's wrong.
I gave the correct pronunciation @the bolded in my previous comment

It's pronounced "Why Fee". "WaiFee"

WiFi is an abbreviation of "Wireless Fidelity" so "WaiFee" is the right pronunciation.

Okay, I just looked it up now. You're correct but I just call it WaiFee since the day I new the full meaning. I guess it was called that way because it makes the pronunciation fast and convenient!
