    3X faster than previous AirPort Extreme

    Unpacked, installed in about 5 minutes.

    Connected to an iMac in the opposite corner of my house to where the new AirPort Extreme is located, ran a speedtest - the internet is more than 3x faster than it was with the previous version AirPort Extreme 10mins before. Sensational!!

    Also - 100% eliminated "dead" spots in my house... AWESOME!!

    Superfast!!

    I purchased this to go with two new laptops we'd bought a new 13" retina and a 13" top spec Air. We have been using the BT HomeHub 3 but after having various problems with it, particularly with Airplay, I decided to swap it for an Airport extreme.

    What can I say, I'm so impressed with it, so easy to set up, so easy to manage and all achievable from an iOS device or a mac. What I really wasn't expecting was such a bump in my broadband speed, on the BT HH3 I was averaging about 20-30mbps on BT's infinity service, using the Airport it shot straight up to over 70mbps. I had read this had happened with other users of the AIrport extreme on BT but didn't know how much of an issue my HH3 router was until I replaced it.

    One small issue I did have was with my Xbox Live. It seems to default to Moderate NAT settings but a few Youtube videos soon showed me how to switch it to stay open.

    Fabulous! It does exactly Apple claim

    Easy to install
    Blisteringly fast wifi.
    I test my wifi speed a couple of times a week.
    Download has increased from 15- 20 Mbps average to +/- 55Mbps.
    I pay my Internet provider for 50mbps.
    It is truly amazing

    Apple Drops the ball.....

    Very disappointed with my new airport extreme for the following reasons:

    1. Slower than previous model, I used to enjoy 95mbs plus internet speed on my previous router, I'm lucky to get 70mbs.

    2. Range is worse, marginal reception in areas that were once quite good.

    3. Aesthetics, Jonny was clearly on holidays when this was developed. All Apples desktops are silver and black, what were you thinking making this white? A miniature version of the new mac pro would have been more logical and aesthetically pleasing or silver.

    Works perfectly with BT Infinity

    I had a BT Home hub 3 which has useless WIFI connectivity. I took the plunge with this new airport extreme although I was a little concerned as to how well it would work with the BT modem. Connecting and configuring the airport extreme with the BT modem was disconcertingly simple and quick but it works great. I'm getting 60mbit speeds vie ethernet and using a phone over wifi am getting 45mbit. Well worth the money despite not having anthing that works with woreless ac yet.

    Fantastic little piece of tech

    Bought to replace an aging 2nd generation time capsule. I was immediately impressed by the ease of set up via my ipad mini and the high through output from the wireless router - I have a NBN 100/40 internet connection and are able to obtain between 85 to 95 % of maximum speed on a consistent basis despite having 10+ other wireless routers within sensing proximity at anyone time. Additionally the much stronger radio signal allows the router signal to be maximised in more places in the apartment.

    Another quality Apple product :).

    Much better range and bandwidth

    Installed last night and immediately saw a massive improvement in signal strength and bandwidth at the far ends of my house (I have a very long house). Haven't got any 802.11ac devices yet but it is still an excellent improvement on all my 802.11n ones.

    Delighted so far

    Ordered immediately after WWDC 2013 to replace an venerable Linksys WRT54G whose fading antenna power was failing.

    Delighted so far, setup was straightforward, done in less than 10 minutes from opening the box. Gigabit ethernet is delivering the full bandwidth from my cable modem for the first time and the wireless coverage is uniformly excellent in my thick walled and three storey Victorian terrace, noticeably quicker for my n capable devices. I don't have any ac devices yet to test those even higher speeds.

    Wireless sharing of a Kodak printer also working as hoped.

    Happy to recommend - nice job Apple.

    Fantastic

    Picked up the first one in Manchester Arndale this morning, I'd been waiting for this 802.11ac upgrade for a while.
    Excellent range, superb speeds, quick and easy set up, looks great.
    Supports local loopback feature which I really needed, the old standard package router I used to use has nothing on this new AirPort Extreme.
    Looking forward to using 802.11ac devices with it.
    Highly recommended, overall a great buy.
