1 Gbps down / 200 Mbps up in Spain. Not everyone has third world download speeds.My ISP provides 5MBs download. I need one of these!! Seriously, if these router manufacturers would stop the speed game upmanship and instead make a stable product I think we would all be alot happier
Thanks for the excellent point, jacobian! I am in the market for a new router (and DSL modem) because I will be upgrading my current CenturyLink connection from 12 Mbps to 40 Mbps. I was getting super hyped to spend $200-250 for a router like this Linksys EA8500 or an ASUS RT-AC87U. I think it'll be better to just get a $100 AC router now, and wait a couple of years to upgrade to one that is MU-MIMO capable.The article does not seem to mention that you take advantage of MU-MIMO you need to have a MU-MIMO compatible client. At the current moment, the only other device that can be a MU-MIMO client is probably this router itself. There will be supposedly some Acer notebooks coming in the summer with MU-MIMO. Does this sound very exciting? That's what I thought. Save your money and buy an ordinary AC1200-AC1900 router or keep one you already have. MU-MIMO will become interesting maybe at least 2-3 years from now once you upgrade all of your gadgets.
