There are only 2 wireless bands - 2.4GHz and 5GHz - a 3rd wireless band (6GHz) will be available in some parts of the world within the next 18 months or so.

You mean 3 chains not bands, why not buy a more enterprise WAP that is more likely to get you best performance (4 chains to boot)

You won't find anything that is any better. The Spark Smart modem is 4x4 Wave 2 MU-MIMO which is as good as you can get. Typically speaking a 3 antenna router will only be 3x3.

 

What client device(s) do you have? If you don't have 4x4 client devices you won't be maxing out the WiFi.

This is my scenario -

Lots of 2x2 AC devices no WiFi 6 no 4x4 no mimo devices
No wired devices

1Gbps ufb connection but the limit is the single AC WiFi chain
The 2.4Ghz is horrible.

Hence the more 5Ghz 2x2 connections available, I would be able to max out my 1Gbps connection.

That's my plan anyway.

The new Spark wifi is 4x4 not single chain.

If I stack all the chains on the spark router, will the WiFi reach or exceed 1Gbps at a single point in time? Ignore the 2.4Ghz as that has a ping to Akl of 500ms!

You seem to be confusing technologies. What you\re decribing is a dual radio AP that supports 2x 5GHz radios.

 

Simple reality is you will not be able to max out your 1Gbps even with one of those.

When I do simultaneous speed test on one of *those at home I get 1Gbps (over 900Mbps) total on 2 separate devices connected to the separate SSIDs.?

*(asus RT AC3200)
*note only but easily and repeatedly achieved when I turn off all QOS & smart features

[this WTB is for the in laws place]

I certainly can almost max out spark's smart modem with just 3 wifi devices connected: laptop + mi box + phone watching 4k video from lan on mi box and phone (each at about 90-100mbps) + downloading linux iso on laptop - 50-60MB/s and at the same time comfortable browsing on main lan connected PC 

 

:)

 

I have almost 30 wireless devices connected at any given time. So SmartModem rocks!
