[Engadget] Broadcom: 802.11ac chipsets already in preproduction, preparing router invasion in summer

Broadcom might have unveiled a bevy of 802.11ac chipsets back at CES, however when it came to availability the chipmaker played more than coy as to when they'd sashay their way out of developmental labs and into the hands of actual consumers. Fast-forward to MWC and the chipmaker's isn't nearly as shy, proclaiming its future WiFi solutions were "beyond the sampling phase" and now in preproduction. Also of note, was the estimate that finished products (read: the ones you can buy) containing this tech would go on sale by mid-2012. With competitor, Qualcomm, also previewing its 802.11ac concoction, could this year possibly shape up to golden era of speedy wireless transfers? Bring it on, we say.

Loving it!

Somewhat point less to most as internet speeds are on average about 15mbps in the US. Only use is for file transfer.

Woah . . . gigabit wireless.

I may need to pause my plans to run fiber between nearby offices until I've had a chance to play with this.

Ahh yeah there are more to networks than internet access...

It will be great for me to stream 1080p movies from my NAS to my TV, iPad, laptops etc...

Why? I know it might be cheaper, but the reliability and security you get with hard wired connection is unparalleled, especially when dealing with a server environment.

Can't wait for the adoption of AC, although, I find it a pain to keep on migrating to something new sometimes.

Why? I know it might be cheaper, but the reliability and security you get with hard wired connection is unparalleled, especially when dealing with a server environment.

The reliability part is what I want to test. I suspect it isn't ideal for connecting a database stored in one building to users in the next building over, but damn would I feel silly if would have worked but we already spent way more than we had to. Also, it will be cool to have some gigabit wireless gear around, just for connecting laptops and such to the fileserver (w/ a usb 802-11ac adapter).

I live/work 3 miles deep along a dirt road in rural Virginia. There are 2 other people that live within 1/2 a mile of us - our neighbors are mostly cows and horses. I'm not too worried about people hacking the wireless network. It's going to be up and be hackable, regardless of whether or not it's used to bridge distant buildings, simply because people here want to be able to access the network with their laptops.
