Overview Wi-Fi data rates
How fast is Wi-Fi?
The data rates supported by access points are based on the use of Modulation and Coding Schemes (MCS). The higher the used MCS, the higher the achievable gross data rate. In net terms, i.e. in practice, clients with higher MCSs can be served with large amounts of data more quickly and thus more clients can be served simultaneously. Use our practical tool to find out which data rates can be achieved depending on the Wi-Fi standard, number of (MU-)MIMO streams, and channel widths.
