I never can understand Asus's naming convention.. is this one similar to AC66U ?
There's no close up on newegg's site, I can't tell if it says ac66u lol ...

Cuz the 68u commonly referred as ac1900 ?

Yes that's exactly what it is.

ASUS RT-AC52U = RT-AC52R (AC750)
ASUS RT-AC56R = RT-AC56U (AC1200)
ASUS RT-AC66R = RT-AC66U (AC1750)
ASUS RT-AC68R = RT-AC68U vs RT-AC68W (AC1900)
ASUS RT-AC87R = RT-AC87U (AC2400)
ASUS RT-N66R = RT-N66U (N900)

Can I ask a potentially ignorant question to many? What is N900 exactly? Googling isn't rendering me too much on it.

It's theoretically possible but your client device connecting to this would need to have a minimum of 2 antennas and support both Dual Band N/AC to achieve it. Or, If you have 3 antennas on your client device running AC, you theoretically should be able to achieve as well if everything is optimal. Reality.... very different for most scenarios as many devices only support AC on one or two antennas (max of 866Mbps). Even at that, you likely will achieve only 2/3

Pretty much the same. Asus vs Netgear. Both are actually pretty decent with Asus having better firmware. IMO, not worth the upgrade as there isn't any performance increase. you'd want to go with something like the AC3100 or AC 87U or 88U to make it worthwhile. But only if you have clients that can support the upgraded speeds.

Why would anyone buy this vs the Tmobile Cellspot for 40 bucks? It seems that's a better router.

It is, if you want to mess with flashing back to the stock firmware which is not a trivial task for this router. You also lose any warranty when you flash it to stock rt-ac88u firmware. For those who want a decent router with warranty and no fuss, this is still a pretty decent deal.

also, the tmo at that price is typically refurbished. occasionally there might be new ones at that price but that hasn't been the case for a while now.
