    Wake me up when they show these speeds outside of a lab setting and inside a real house with numerous walls.
  3. How far? Distance between ? Who were they sending all the Ed Snowden documents to ?
    Fast speeds indeed. Will we be able to ditch cables at home though once routers have this ?
    Will we still have issues from Microwave ovens, Cell phones, Old Tech, Neighbours gadgets?

    This would require full usage of USB 3.1 to deliver data to the PC.

    I would really be happy to dump my cable provider, but all this tech isn't feasible for the mass market. Perhaps by 2020 or something... Here in Ireland we are still on 3G, mostly, and in many places the speed drops to 2G.
