What is the real bandwidth that Airport can handle in the local network (wired and Wi-Fi)?
I'm trying to compare Apple Airport Extreme with other routers with similar characteristics, so it's important to check the bandwidth but Apple don't talk about this in the specifications sheet.

The LAN ports can handle up to 1Gbps, whereas 802.11ac WI-FI on the 5Ghz frequency can handle up to 1300Mbps (1.3Gbps). This is if the devices are compatible or whether the speed can be delivered by the Internet Service Provider. 802.11b/g/n handle less speed than this.
