WiFi Speeds- Real World Results

The latest WiFi standards like 802.11n and 802.11ac promise higher data rates than older standards like 802.11g/b/a, but as you may have noticed you never get the speeds indicated by the specification. Various factors contribute to a decrease in overall WiFi speed vs. what is stated in the specifications, including dense walls or walls containing metal, heavy usage on your router, usage of a WiFi “repeater” or range-extender, and radio frequency interference (RFI) from cordless phones, microwave ovens, and florescent lighting ballasts. So what sort of speeds are typical?  This post about Real World WiFi Speeds outlines what WiFi speeds you can expect in practice.
