Re: Things that make you go Hummmmm.
The real issue is that - outside of niche users with niche USES, who can actually use those sorts of speeds? And I don't care how many users are on a node - it's more likely that the NODE can deal with those speeds than the server on the host end could. The only companies that can remotely leverage that sort of speed as server hosts are Microsoft and Apple - and even they partner with bandwidth companies (in the case of both companies, Akamai figures prominently). The recent launch of the Office 365/2013 preview (all of a mere three days ago) is a solid real-world view of how crippled folks are today by what's out there today (especially bandwidth constraints or node congestion).
