    What they really need to do is get 10GB and dump the 1GB for Wired LAN side. WiFi always going to be iffy. 802.11n @ 40MHz and 300/300 split that it.s the New 802.11ac we just don't have the hardware to use it yet. Going to cost more money to get gear to use that new standard. Most users are sill on 802.11b, 802.11g some are using 802.11a the rest are on 802.11n. All these 450/450 = 900mbps Now it's going to be over Gbps.
