Glad that my internet service goes that fast... Er, wait... Cool stuff either way.
 
The only real benefit will be the power to copy multi-gig files to your SD card nearly instantly at home over Wi-Fi... Oh wait, that SD card... nobody bothers including support for those anymore.
 
How many seconds of that speed before you hit your monthly quota?
 
+Jan Moren WiFi, dude. Unless your home cable/DSL/Satellite/whatever connection is also capped, you're in the clear here.
 
+Jake Weisz I doubt they will stop at putting those chips in phones only. Home streaming from NAS to connected TVs and tablets will benefit too.
 
I'm at 400 Mbps on my 802.11n network now so why go to ac? I know 400 Mbps is above the n spec but it is an n router and they are n nic cards. 33Mbps isn't much of an improvement from the n hardware already at market.
 
+Harry Taylor Thanks, that i didn't know. A 1 Gbps wireless connection would be worth the upgrade to the new spec.
 
There is pitiful infrastructure to support something like this. Even 4g in Minneapolis is spotty at best. During the Red Bull Crashed Ice event here I couldn't even make a voice call...

We should concentrate on infrastructure for these things before we go developing blazing speeds nobody can use.
 
I say we get fast, reliable internet to the entire US.
 
No, i get it, but when N came out, was there a mass upgrade everywhere to accommodate that? Not really. Now we're going to go to another protocol that increases speeds yet again, when most coffee shops and other public wifi outlets can't get their crap together enough to upgrade beyond a G router.
Sure, for my home, this would be great, when will I get a gaming system that can accomodate this? How about a computer? When will infrastructure of cable internet be able to accomodate an internet speed that will come anywhere near touching this kind of bandwidth?

I'm just being pessimistic...don't worry about me.
