Default [Q] WiFi speed

We are just about to upgrade to BT Infinity with a theoretical maximum speed of 78Mbps and locally report peaks of about 65Mbps.

Currently online testing shows we get about 6.5Mbps.

I connect to our broadban through three routers. One is a master router (Homehub 3) and the the other 2 (Homehub 2) are configured as WiFi extenders hard wirded to the master router through TPLink adapters (200Mbps).

I've notice recently that the Xoom seems slower when surfing. This could mean that I need to clear out some of the unwanted data and apps and do a reset.

However given that the Xoom is 802.11 a/b/g/n what sort of improvement should I see on the Xoom due to the Infinity upgrade?
