Re: Phone faster then network?
I don't think its any worse than people byuing an 802.11g or even worse 802.11pre-n WiFi router for their internet connection which only runs at 1.5Mb.
Katrina wireless Network Router is different the wireless phone network. People buy the the standard for the local network speeds. So if you want to transfer a file via wireless network you can do faster then using B which is 10mbs per second. Also the faster wireless network give you the ability add more nodes without slowing down the wireless access points so now N standard can take more wireless without slowing down g too much. Another way you can think of it (B standard) AMPS (N) CDMA. We all know that CDMA is faster data speeds and more capacity vs AMPS which is slower data speeds less capacity.
The highest speed home service I have ever seen is only 12Mb which, yeah, you might want an 802.11g router for, but the average is 3Mb which 802.11b could more than handle.
SO why get an 802.11pre-n router? Because it's new and cool ;-)
Very true which is why i have g router for the local network speeds and security. I wont for n in a long time since that a huge network upgrade. I would buy the newer data speeds phone so i can download faster files from the internet and be ready not worrying about being left behind because i am stuck in a contract.
