BearExtender has today announced that their new BearExtender Turbo for Mac is now available to purchase directly from their weskit for $80. The BearExtender Turbo for Mac has been created to provide an easy method of adding support to 802.11ac Wi-Fi to your Mac.
The new BearExtender Turbo features a maximum throughput speed of 867 Mbps on the 5 Ghz 802.11ac band when used with 802.11ac standard routers such as the 2013 AirPort Extreme or 2013 Time Capsule and is up to 3 times faster than previous generation 300 Mbps and 450 Mbps 802.11n equipped Macs.
The BearExtender Turbo for Mac connects by a simple USB 3.0 connection and is equipped with twin dual band 2.4 and 5 Ghz upgradable antennas and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard up to the latest OS X 10.9 Mavericks operating system. BearExtender explain little more about the setup required to get the most from your BearExtender Turbo for Mac.
“For maximum connection speeds, BearExtender Turbo must be used with an 802.11ac router and a USB 3.0 port. It is backward compatible with 802.11b/g/n standards. Internet download and streaming speeds will be limited by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) plan and service tier.
For example, if your 802.11n Mac already gets the full speed provided by your ISP, BearExtender cannot increase the speed of your ISP. We recommend the 2013 AirPort Extreme or the 2013 Time Capsule, both which are 802.11ac capable. BearExtender Turbo is compatible with any 802.11ac router or network and will also connect to all Wi-Fi networks including 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.”
