I understand, but I was referring to the average home internet 
connection. But even for work 100Mbps seems a bit overkill for most 
purposes. Whole offices work fine with a "mere" bonded T1 at 10Mbps. 
Admitted it's symmetrical and is more stable. But regarding speed it's 
quite a bit slower than the mentioned 100Mbps home internet.
