I'm talking about real world, every day use. If you expect me to believe your most common online activity is downloading a DVD ISO, you're either crazy, a pirate, or have an uncommon practice of deleting ISOs that you're going to need again in five minutes.
Is downloading an ISO in 10 minutes a nice thing? Sure! But when I'm only doing it once in a blue moon, it's a crazy argument that it's worth paying extra for those speeds. Typical web surfing, even streaming video, does not require that kind of bandwidth.
Now when we get to the world of IPTV, or when streaming HD video becomes the norm rather than the exception, maybe the extra bandwidth will be a "necessity". But today, it's simply an extravagant expense that offers little more to Average Joe than the ability to say "My speeds are better than yours!" Vulcan don't play that game, I don't pay for what I don't want or don't use.
