1Gbps WiFi is in the works

But could still be a few more years away

802.11n is a sure benefit over the older b and g standards we were stuck with for a long time, but like all technologies, sooner or later they'll be superseeded in one way or another and there's no doubt even faster wireless capabilities than the 300Mbps on tap at the moment would be widely accepted and embraced by the masses.

Sure enough, we learn today that it is indeed coming, albeit could be as late as 2013 before it arrives. The upcoming new standard is called 802.11ac and it is reported to be able to push wireless speeds of up to 1Gbps; very tasty indeed.
