I have Verizon FiOS. I used to have 50Mbps but went back down to 25Mbps as I could not find anything that worked better or faster with 50Mbps. For the average consumer, 25Mbps is more than plenty for now. Verizon is right, 100Mbps is simply wasteful and overkill.
I definitely had no problem using all 50mbs when I had the 50mbs tier. But I dropped my tier to the 25/15(although I wish they had the 35/20 tier here) in protest of them screwing my speeds up in June. I regularly maxed out my 50mbs connection when I had it.
And i do miss it when it takes me twice as long to download a 5GB or 6GB movie from Xbox Live or PSN or other large files online that would max out my conne ction. PSN would almost always max my 50mbs connection and XBL would hit 40mbs to 50mbs.
