How much better is 802.11ac WiFi, and when will we see it in consumer products?
dbrown 2 years ago
I understand that 802.11ac Wi-Fi will be faster than 802.11n. Will it offer any other advantages, like increased range or new security standards that will be noticeable to users even when they aren't streaming Netflix to their Androids at the office. One of our interns likes to stream Sgt. Frog while she "works", so that would be great for her, but hopefully there will be other benefits for the rest of us (Although I have to admit that she was right: Sgt. Frog is, in fact, hilarious.). Also, when can we expect to see 802.11ac used in consumer products like laptops and tablets, where faster WiFi would really be a benefit?
