    I purchased the new Time Capsule last week and have been noticing much better wireless speeds with all my devices. Signal strength isn't necessarily better but I've noticed that my iPad, iPhone and Macbook Pro are running the same speed as my wired connection to my iMac. Nice!

    Yep. I have 50 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload service from my ISP and see full speeds on my iPhone sitting about 30 feet away from the TC.

    If the new antenna design improves the signal strength of 802.11 a/b/g/n, even devices without 802.11ac could theoretically see improvements. IMO.

    As eager as I was for a APE w/ AC I will wait until their are refurb ones from Apple and/or iPhone 5S/iPad Mini 2 with WiFi AC

    I have a rMBP, so I have wireless N. I'm not using AC. But bandwidth seems more reliable, especially over LAN. Also, range is improved.

    That's pretty much what I was thinking. Apple did something to improve throughput on non 802.11ac devices. Antenna design? Other internal improvements? Who knows, but the performance is definitely better.

    Replaced TC and express with new TC and extreme towers. Definitely better signal strength everywhere.

    Does the new AE use the included fan or do they only spin up in the TC due to the HDD?

    I have a 50Mb down and 10 Mb up service with comcast.

    This is what I get using 802.11n on my MBP connected via my last gen Airport Extreme ( 802.11n )

    It's likely you will but of course if you don't, you can always take it back.
