I really want to have 100 mbps on my pc but thats too expensive. You ask me why? bluray movies.
i get 5-6mbps down where i live which is more than enough to stream and load whatever is on the web without a problem. there are still some spots that are slow but even in those spots the signal has improved. consistency is just as, if not more, important than speed.
the place where having 30mbps speeds comes in handy is when you're downloading large files(coughporncough).
if metro's roolout goes as planned we'll all be downloading at 10mbps sometime next year which will be gravy since we dont get throttled.
