I know my use-case is vastly different from a lot of you guys who genuinely need gigabit connections for whatever, but I think my usage is pretty par for the course in terms of average ISP consumers (honestly, I probably d/l and u/l quite a bit more than the average consumer) and this current performance I am getting is well beyond adequate for me...

You don't realize you need faster speeds until you get it. I upgraded from 30Mbps Comcast to 1gig Fios. I don't know how I did without it now. It really helps when I would load up BF1 wanting to play and then find out I had to download a 10gig update...a minute and a half later its done.
