Is the USB 2.0 port on the Extreme a true High Speed USB port with approx. 480Mbps throughput, or is it just USB 2.0 compatible?

I'm thinking of connecting High Speed certified USB 2.0 drives to the Extreme as network drives, but it doesn't say anywhere how fast the AP Extreme's USB port is. Just saying that it is USB 2.0 isn't enough. That could mean that it is a 12Mbps port and NOT a High Speed 480 Mbps port. Also wondering if anyone is using a High Speed hub that they can recommend.
