2013: The year Gigabit Wi-Fi arrives

Quote:
No more idle chit-chat, Gigabit Wi-Fi, thanks to 802.11ac, is on its way to your home and corporate networks.

Las Vegas Last year, Broadcom started shipping 802.11ac chipsets, which could reach 1.3Gbps speeds. Shipping routers and systems that could support 802.11ac, however, remained scarce. In 2013, that will all change. The day of Gigabit Wi-Fi is here.

Tbh I think 100Mbps is fast enough. Anything over is great but then as per usual the price isn't.

Both D-Link with it's new 802.11ac Router and Asuz with it's killer PCI-E 802.11ac NIC hardware capible of 1.4GB, although most of the gains are accomplished by gaining bandwidth using channel bonding, up too 8 channels instead of just two.

It's still pretty cool and I plan on upgrading my hardware pretty soon so I can see what it's really capible of.
