AVM are showing off their latest box at CeBIT in Hanover March 05 - 09
I wonder if Snap will offer them as an option?

The wireless home network makes with FRITZ! a quantum leap in speed and range. With the upcoming Wi-Fi standard 11ac made the FRITZ! Transfer rates of up to 1,300 Mb / s

802.11ac is great, but the 5Ghz band is starting to fill up already so there are no guarantees of performance, especially when the faster speeds rely on 80Mhz channels. Getting any more than a couple of hundred Mbps can be a challenge.

I see 802.11ad as the most exciting standard, 60Ghz doesn't propagate well at all so it'll deliver fantastic short distance in room performance.

Yeah, I wouldn't get too excited, in real world usage the throughput is nowhere near 1300mbit, try dropping off the '1' at the beginning :D

I have to agree, I've got the 7390 and it's a shame that the antenna aren't upgradeable

I agree aswell, although the ADSL Router is amazing, the WLAN part is a bit lacking, Range and throughput drops off quickly.

I use a seperate Access Point .. UAP-Pro ( http://ubnt.com ) << Amazing performance and range

wlan and dect on the fritzs are poor. Im not even bothering with the dect as it wobt even cover the house. 5ghz wifi on it is also worse than other APs.
