    the "SPONSORED" article fails to mention the need for structured ethernet cabling needs to be in place or installed to run standard access points

    it is however the current best way to achieve better coverage up until now

    once we see a dedicated 2156M wifi backbone things will change

    atm we are seeing 70MB/s out of a 1733M dedicated wifi backbone ( orbi )
