said by LightS:Most content servers are on gigabit lines, and they employ QoS/throttling to ensure everyone gets decent speeds - you won't be downloading at 1Gbps from them. Thus, the majority of servers won't even do 100Mbps. Even the servers with SSDs and 10Gbps lines throttle connections. Heck, when I last tested it, YouTube's CDN maxed out at 70Mbps - when downloading a large 4K video. You'll only see 1Gbps from a few CDNs, some speedtest.net servers, and private dedis.
Uhm, and why wouldn't it download faster than 100mbps cable?
That doesn't mean the connection isn't capable of it.
I figured it would be more useful for, say, 3 people doing internet-intense stuff. Three people downloading games, movies, music, all at 100mbps. That leaves you a TON of free bandwidth.
I didn't know you meant single stream only.
