Not really true. If the router supports 300 Mb/s it does not mean that the actual internet connection is that fast. 300 does make sense in local network traffic for example, if the ISP doesn't provide internet that fast. My SpeedTouch 780 WL router supports 802.11g 54Mbps wireless, but does not support internet over 8 Mbps.
Also, 300Mbps hardware running at half speed because of bad signal is still better than 150Mbps at half speed.
You can use iwconfig to see the actual speed of your wifi link. If it's lower than what the hardware supports, the signal quality is probably not good enough for 300Mbps. My connection for example is often shown as 36 or 48 Mbps instead of 54 when I'm not near the router.
