    4th generation time capsule speed limits

    I have changed my internet service provider to get speed of 200 MBPS from Comcast. I have got 4th generation time capsule (802.11n). Will my time capsule be able to handle this speed ? OR Do I need to plan for an upgrade for latest time capsule with 802.11ac?
