Very true.  We have two gigs, but a commercial speedtest comes up
seriously short (typically 100+ Mbps) while a locally hosted speedtest
will show 800-900+.  Not sure how much is "their" upstream versus simple
physics... you'd have to be the only test subject to a gig-connected
server to do much better.

We have had some "contrived" examples over I2 that pushed 500Mbps
symmetric, but they ran that demo over our I2 pipe because their
commodity link couldn't deliver the necessary rate/latency.
