- 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.Feb 23, 2012
- I was specifically referring to the benefit of having them in a phone. :)Feb 23, 2012
- Thanks, that i didn't know. A 1 Gbps wireless connection would be worth the upgrade to the new spec.Feb 23, 2012
- 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.Feb 23, 2012
- I say we get fast, reliable internet to the entire US.Feb 23, 2012
- 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.Feb 23, 2012
