I believe you, and the physics.
The question is perhaps, do the 5Ghz access point and stations implement
everything correctly to get this benefit.

/me BSc. Physics (high-energy).
I even took the 4th year EM course from EE.

My 2.4Ghz spectrum has a periodic (120s or so) blast from something which
makes ssh often unuseable... then it goes away for a few months... I have
some screen captures somewhere from wavemon.

More radios, I agree.
