TrendNet started making the world’s first WiFi-AC Dongle with USB 3.0. It says it supports speeds up to 867 Mbps. This is important because the USB 2.0 dongles can’t even come close to this at effective speeds of 320-350 Mbps. USB 3.0 can deliver 3000-3500 Mbps.
So this dongle actually delivers the speeds WiFi AC promises. USB isn’t the bottleneck.
So why would I need 867 Mbps when my internet service is only 1-20 Mbps? Because you are connected to a WiFi Router that has a USB 3.0 Hard Drive (or Flash Drive) attached to it for central storage of your pictures, videos, and vacation plans (That sounds better than Tax info doesn’t it?).
