1500 sq ft (as it says in the link) or 4500 sq ft (as it says in the post)?

I wouldn’t trust either numbers. Both would assume unobstructed line of sight with a single device with no other interference, and probably at 5GHz speeds, not the far slower but more commonplace 2.4GHz speeds.

In the real world range is significantly hampered by things like walls, receiving hardware, protocol overhead, and interference.

I have Unifi kit throughout my place (love it) that’s ostensibly 1200Mbps capable over 5GHz Wi-Fi, and even unobstructed from a few feet away the best speeds I can typically get on my iPhone is around 500Mbps. (This is likely due to so much interference from my neighbors.)
