HTC One mini specs: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual band, DLNA

Source http://www.htc.com/ca/smartphones/htc-one-mini/#/ and http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one_mini-5505.php

 

Currently Fido Equipment Specs for the HTC One mini are listed as: Wi-Fi®: 802.11 a/b/g/n, 2.4 & 5GHz

Please confirm if Fidos HTC one mini supports WiFi AC/5GHz

Re: HTC One Mini possible error in listed Wifi Specs

Dual band means it can operate in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band.

 

The HTC One Mini is only 802.11 a/b/g/n. It does not support AC.

 

So although it can operate in the 5Ghz band using 802.11n, it does not support the WiFi 802.11ac protocol.

 

Hope that helps.

It does help and if I understand you correctly that means while connected to the 5Ghz band a user of the HTC one mini will not be able to benifit from the increased speeds of 5Ghz but will benifit from less interferance due to the popularity of 2.4Ghz.

 

Is that right?

You'll benefit from the increased speed with 5Ghz. Depending on your router and configuration you can get anywhere from 75 to 150 mbps.

Just to give you an example, I have a Nexus 5 (which supports 802.11ac), but my router is only a dual band N router. I still get 150 mbps when connected to the 5Ghz band.
