Everybody knows EA6700 has been released in EU today.
(almost $100 expensive than EA6500)
I was waiting for it badly because I wanted to replace my EA6500.
But spokesperson from linksys announced EA6700 will not be available in the USA.
Are you going to release the higher model of EA6700?

USB 2.0 is 480 mbits/s. theorical. Wifi 802.11ac is 867 to 1300 mbits/s. theorical.
So yes, USB 3.0 plug will be faster on the 6700 at least twice the speed on wifi or via the 1Gigabit switch. Thank you.

You don't understand. Using the USB port on the router with a thumb driver or something, there is nothing that can transfer 480Mbit/sec right now. The router's main function is to route. Move data between ports and wireless. The USB port is just for small convenience.
