Unless you plan on providing everyone is your neighborhood or apartment complex with internet you don't need 300 Mbps.

By your flawed logic then 640kb RAM ought to be enough for anybody! Cause it is enough for me and therefore noone else will ever require any more than this!

Your point is stupid. Name me ONE site that allows you to use 300 Mbps? Netflix maxes out to 4800 kbps and since you can only have 6 devices that's a total of 28 Mbps. Ok let's add 6 more devices maxing out HBOGo and 6 more maxing out Spotify and it's 320 Kbps music streaming. Which is the highest music streaming you can get. Heck let's add a VoIP line constantly being used 24/7 And let add 3 XBOXes all on XBL 24/7. You're not even close to 100 Mbps. Sure in the FUTURE is it possible to need 300 Mbps? Sure. I'll worry about the future when it gets here. You'd have to be stupid for pay for 300 Mbps NOW when it maybe be 5, 10, 20 years before you can use it. Pay for it then.

Also I wasn't talking about ME and MY personal use I referring to people in general.

Give it time. Cable is going the way of the landline. Eventually, everything will go through the Internet.

if you take away cable- how do you plan on getting that wireline? after all FiOS is a cable medium- by it uses a "cable" to run.

And actually cable won't. FiOS takes HOURS to install where cable doesn't. Customers shop on time, and price, not fully speed. And not many people are signing up for FiOS as Karl and Phillip, along with others want to make it out to be.

Have to say, I agree with you here. Not everyone needs this speed, sure make it available, but I definitely won't be paying that kind of money for something I don't need.

I live on a budget, and I have all the speed that I will ever need for recreational use. If I ever score a job where I can work remotely, then yea, I'll want all the extra upload I can get, but for right now I'm happy.

Not saying everyone should think this way, but seriously, at those price points for residential use, I wouldn't convert.

Not sure how shitty the FiOS installers are that it would take HOURS to install...

The contract installers who brought my socialist Fiber connection into my house had everything terminated, attached and working in well under an hour!

We're talking total bandwidth here. Sure, there isn't a site that can max that particular download speed right now. I think what Verizon is getting at is if you have several devices streaming/downloading at once there won't be a slow down. That's the point of all that bandwidth.

to answer your question of which site allows use of 300, i don't have the 300 package (yet), but steam maxes out my 150 fios just fine. i guess i'll find out if they can peg the needle on 300 soon.

Depends. I've had several business FIOS installations done over the past month, and a couple of them took 2-3 hours. The bulk of the time is trenching in the fiber. One building even had existing conduit from a telco vault outside, but they had to bring the fiber from an access point about 100 yards away. No obstacles, just a long distance. They put in 2 fiber drops-- one lit, one dark-- so they wouldn't have to repeat the job if we added more services in the future. (Fiber is cheap, might as well over-build while the trench is open.)

In my tests of above 100 mbit, Steam allows higher downloads then 100, so pretty much every legal downloading service.

If it can go above 100 it can do 1000.

A business can certainly use 300 mbps now. They could host their own website cheaper than paying someone to host it. It could support over 100 employees all videoconferencing at the same time.

My router can't do more than 20 mbps via wi-fi, and that's plenty fast enough.

They don't trench in Va, they just string the cable into the woods....

I would rather say that cable TV will all be IP based in the future. Being through the Internet means an entirely different thing because your cable provider would be using their existing private network and their traffic does not need to go outside on the public Internet. That's pretty much how it works now except it is not IP based.
