    I think Broadcom's 802.11ac chip is half-baked, lot of problems with synch, throughput, and sleep states. Hearing the new MBP and iMac's having the same issues. Probably best to take the year off and try again next year as it sounds like an issue in silicon, not fixable in firmware/software.

    Did you ever find a resolution to this? I'm experiencing the same thing on both my MBP and iMac.

    Thanks.
