Default [Q] M8 wifi tech question

I have a shiny new m8 on its way to be delivered today, but I have a question I haven't been able to find the answer to. What kind of 802.11ac wireless speed does the m8 have? Is it MIMO? How many streams? I'm curious what kind of connectivity speeds can be expected....

Thanks!

I dunno, but my M7 can do 433Mbps connection speed, managing 100-200Mbps against speedtest.net.

I doubt the M8 is slower.

It does pretty darn good, not the best I've seen here but it's cable so it has its ups and down.

Any updates on this? I was looking for the same information on the web, but have yet to find it. When I was looking at my M8 today after installing my new AC router, I knew 433MB seemed low [or at least very familiar]. Glad to hear that this is what it probably was prior to changing out to an Netgear R7000, but I figured that it would use more of the 1600MBps that is 'available'.

Even GSMArena didn't have the specifics [though I see the LTE is faster in the M8]:

I have an M8 now and I think the speeds are the same as I mentioned above, 433Mbps connection, peaking at 200Mbps in a speed test.
