Default WiFi 802.11n 150Mbps vs 300Mbps?

OK, so what's the practical difference between these two?

Is it worth it to pay more for the 300Mbps? What kind of application would use this bandwidth? Would you actually achieve > 150 Mbps speed anyway? 300 Mbps?

Does the 300Mbps router support 300Mbps per connection? Or does it get divided by all the wireless clients?

that kind of speed would be useful if you were running many IP cameras on the same network, IF the cameras were just as fast.

it's a be ready for the future thing, not a get full benefits today thing

So you're saying that the 300Mbps is bandwidth that gets divide into many security cameras strewn about the store? Or that there are super HD security camera (or multiple CCD / lens) systems that make a single connection to the router?

I am not saying anything like either.
  • The bandwidth is available for any device that uses it
  • very few devices need that much bandwidth
  • IP cameras are the devices that consume the most bandwidth at this time
  • a system with that much bandwidth could support many IP cameras or other bandwidth hogs
  • inluding NAS Network Attached Storage devices moving big files around

Ah...I wasn't thinking of a wireless Hard Drive.

So in a more "usual" application..if you were gonna stream HD videos over various computers around the house over WiFi without a central Hard Drive, it wouldn't make a difference since no HD movie takes > 150Mbps to stream. Unless you are planning to copy it to an ipad to take it with you or something.
