    I live in the Philippines and am subscribed to a paltry 5Mbps internet plan. This being a third world country, it's actually considered "decent" so no need to laugh lol.

    On an iPhone 4s I can get around 4Mbps down and .3 Mbps up using an internet speed test. I have a fairly standard router that my ISP provided.

    Would it be wishful thinking for me to think my RiPad mini, which won't get here till December, have significantly improved wifi performance despite what my internet service plan is? What is everyone else's experience with MiMo?

    Mimo provides you with a more stable connection back to your router. It won't effect overall speed from your provider tho.

    It will have improved wi-fi performance for local stuff (e.g. iTunes wi-fi sync) assuming your router is up to task. Won't really improved your internet speed, though.

    I ran multiple speedtest with an Ipad-1 against my Ipad-Air. Speeds were near double on the Air. I posted the results here a week ago.

    Yeah but thing is OP's internet is only 5Mbps. You can already max that out with an iPhone 4S.

    Not for bragging rights, but the Internet in my house is at 200 Mbps. I still have opened my mini, but the 802.11ac router and the new MBA just rocks at Speedtest.net

    I haven't tried speed test yet but one thing I have noticed , is that when I take my rMini into a room where I had no WiFi signal before , now I can connect without any problem .

    Mimo, You get dual antennas, as a result you can get a speed up to 300mbps. While non mimo, you will only get 150mbps.
