Yes, indeed if Vfast did sell it as "100Mbps" broadband, small print: "subject to contention at the AP / relay", they wouldn't be saying anything different from what other operators / other types of service already get away with so I'm not meaning to single anyone out.
I just get fed up when headline figures and especially wireless "signalling data rates" being quoted as if real IP throughput, or the way that upstream throughput is generally glossed over in the interests of marketing higher downstream. Especially things sold as "Next Generation" still mimic the asymmetry of ADSL even if the newer technologies do not require it to.
On the antennas, (again a big if
it's Airmax stuff), yes those sectors and omnis APs are already 2x2 MIMO, as are CPEs (apart from the AirGrid and Bullet), so good links can easily reach MCS15 (300M) but that is still not 100M symmetric on the ethernet port.
I think more throughput is possible if you are assembling your own boards with separate antennas and can go to say 3x3 MIMO or better with gigabit (and/or link aggregation) on the wired interfaces.
But my main reason for mentioning any of this was for other posters not to be too swept up by speculation that speeds can always be increased by upgrades at the centre, and that there will be inherent technical limits unless kit on a customers own roof is also replaced.
