The main need for a 1 gig connection is to feed multiple user all the bandwidth they need. There review was a little funny trying to find a single server that could feed them a 1gig bandwidth test. The real way is to start maybe five test simultaneously at one time to different servers. That is the only way to utilize that fast of a connection.
True but that just further points out that the other companies aren't keeping pace with technology. If there were other companies doing this and infrastructure (backbone) upgrades happening like they should then it would be fairly easy to test the connection speed.
Their whining is kind of like saying there is no demand for cable modem speeds since most of the servers are behind (slower) T1's anyway... stupid argument.
