Re: [Speed] Chicago speed changes

But, to be honest, outside of a business, who really needs some of these speeds? It's reaching the point of diminishing returns.

For the average grandma that only checks Facebook 2-3 times a week then surely it's a waste. I have 50Mbps now and while I don't find myself needing more (I max out that much on downloads and only then wish it was faster) i still wouldn't mind having even 1Gbps (yes, e-penis lol). Realistically, 100-200Mbps would be the MOST i could ever say i "need."

Few days ago had friends come over and downloading shows from iTunes while was fast still took about 15/20mins (while my other downloads were going from IRC.)
