Abstract: In the gauge-Higgs unification scenario the Higgs boson is unified with gauge bosons in extra dimensions. It appears as an Aharonov-Bohm phase in the fifth dimension, and becomes absolutely stable. Higgs bosons become the dark matter of the universe. The WMAP data fixes the Higgs mass to be around 70 GeV. The spectrum and interactions of KK modes are determined to be checked at Tevatron and LHC.
