According to ABI Research, the three proposals for 802.11n could be harmonized. That could lead to chipsets late 2006.

Earlier, Unstrung reported IEEE voting set for January 2006.

802.11n will push data rates to 108 Mbps, which is enough for TV and video. Airgo boasts speeds up to 240 Mbps, which means surpassing ethernet (and the "death of HomePlug"). Airgo President Raleigh: "Up until now consumers have always asked the question, 'Why should I go wireless?' The question now is, 'Why should I go wired?'" Netgear shortly after this launched RangeMax 240, using Airgo's 3G MIMO.
