There's downloads but half the time you're limited by the server and even if you did have some crazy gigabit internet you still wouldn't be able to utilize it's full potential so it would be mostly a waste. 25/10 is also around the max most VPN's support so if I had anything faster I would have to run naked if I wanted to take advantage of it.

My usenet downloads are automated anyway so all the "Linux Distros" are downloading when I'm away or sleeping so everything is already there on the computer when I get back, never been an issue. I run an FTP server and a mail server on my residential line, there's never any issues; people can complete a 10gb download off me in 20 minutes or so.

So yea why do I need better internet exactly? I mean if it's free yea sure why not but I don't seem to have any incentive right now. Thing to note is that this is an internet connection for me and me only, if I had 3 kids streaming stuff off tablets, Playstations, 4 phones on the wifi and other stuff it might be different.
I beg to differ, i moved to France from the US where i had coax 100/10 and it was very unreliable, i now have 1000/350 for a third or so of what i paid in the US and this includes a mobile 4g plan with 30gb of data. Steam is usually the slowest but i can get 110MB/s on uplay and origin without issues, games download pretty much in under an hr where before it would take me 8+. Sure for regular people it's not worth upgrading if they charge an arm and a leg, here it's the same price, free installation and 50€ activation fee.

You pretty much agreed with them.
What VPN do you use that supports those speeds?

If you haven't actually experienced faster speeds it's hard to understand. I have 450 down / 25 up (that ratio is ridiculous) and couldn't imagine going back to 200, let alone 100mbps or under.

What I meant though is how much better is that internet really? Is it really worth it? Does it really make that much of a difference in terms of usability? Is there something you can do that I can't (something that matters anyway some theoretical anecdote 1%'er situation doesn't really matter) and I am complete debilitated if I tried to do the same thing. Really how often to you download a game and need to play it right there and then and can't wait or schedule the download overnight. Considering it would cost like $200 a month here for a plan like that is it really worth it?

I think I have a pretty advanced/unique setup running servers and all and like I said don't really see how much better it could be, wouldn't be worth a 200% cost increase that's for sure. What does one need to do to be amazed like that with faster internet.

Don't get that first part. As for the VPN's, in order of speed. IP Vanish, Vypr & Mullvad. IP Vanish was the fastest but they got busted for logging so I wont be renewing with them. Vypr gets pretty close to my max depending on the server, really 25/10 is really 23/9 and Vypr gets me around that.

There was no causation, factual or implied. You implied there was correlation - a common cause. I don't know what that common cause is. If you would, I'd love to hear it.

Just pulled 42mbps while using a small usb wifi adapter, through an extender which is about 100ft away from the actual ISP provided (and junk) router while visiting at my families house for a bday party. There are currently at least 10 wifi devices being actively used for streaming/games/browsing not counting the wired in desktops.

I'm also on a 15w tdp AMD apu from 2014 and running throuh PIA's vpn service.

I'm not sure why you think the limit of VPN's is so slow speed wise unless you are always connecting wayyyy overseas? I'll have to test this is on my desktop at home and see what my vpn results are.

As far as download use goes, it was nice to be able to download any game from my steam library in a matter of minutes while visiting to play with my nephew. There are plenty of uses for quicker than 25mbps...

Actually scratch the overseas part, just connected to Japan and aside from the atrocious 100ms ping, speed tests returned 53mbps... on the same setup as above.

they should focus on improving latency and reliability, or better yet stop overloading the lines with too many users.

they already got the bandwidth down but the horrible latency and inconsistency of it makes it a tad too unusable in certain situations.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.
