AppleInsider is reporting that Apple will incorporate the much faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi specification into products this year.

"The new 802.11ac standard achieves much faster wireless networking speeds than the existing 802.11n specification (in use on the latest Mac, AirPort and iOS devices) by using 2 to 4 times the frequency bandwidth (from 80 to 160MHz), more efficient data transfers through sophisticated modulation, and more antennas (up to 8; existing standards support up to 4, while Apple's Macs currently use up to 3)."

This new WiFi will 3 times as fast as traditional wireless.
