if there was a "sweet spot" it would be more like 100/100 then 50Mbps
the thing is once you have the network to support 100/100 then you might as well make it 1Gbps since its trivial at that point
Yes, I agree. 100/100 should be the "sweet spot" Though, 50 is nothing to sneeze at, being sucked by multiple users/devices can really suck it up fast and slow things down.
In 2013, 50 should be standard, 100 should be next and 300-1G be the top. I would pay 70-100 for those speeds.
Bring that competition, Google!
