I tried running speedtest.net through the built in browser on E8 and get around 200mbps down connected on 5GHz wifi. I have 300mbps service, so that's pretty good for the TV. However, the Apple TV right below can pull in almost the full 300 over wifi no problemo. Massive overkill but I never get any buffering, not even running a very high bitrate 4K HDR file from the NAS. Still don't think you'd ever need more then the 100mbps you can max out via ethernet on these 8 series models.
Looks like the link rate between my router and E8 is 866mbps, so E8 does have excellent wifi speed capability over a local network.
