Enhanced Edition - no wireless AC?

The Kickstarter reached the goal with AC. I ordered the enhanced edition. Yet it doesn't support Wireless AC? It doesn't even support the 5GHz band! The device manager shows it as:
"Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO Adapter"

Hardware ID's for anyone interested:
VID_02d0
PID_a94d

Anything LattePanda on this?

Another thing to bring up: Even with the antenna connected I get terrible signal quality.

Same thing here. No ac or 5ghz band .
The wifi signal is ok ( depends where and how you mount the antenna) but speed is G not even close to N speed. Though it does say its connected at 72mbps it barely does 28mbps. I have to use it on wire because wifi performance is terribadImage

The actual physical WiFi chip doesn't support AC. It's this model:

In the comments on Kickstarter I've seen multiple comments from people indicated they have Wireless AC and others indicating they don't, when they should. LattePanda is leaving us in the dark on this? Way to build up trust after release.

According to this comment:

It's safe to say us backers will never received WiFi AC? I backed after we hit the stretch goal. AC was a big part of my decision.
