Really?  I have 2 x VDSL (40/10) to my house, running MLPPP.  I can get a sustained 60M down or 15M up on a single stream without a lot of difficulty.  It does typically need both ends to be aware of window scaling, or you start to run up against the LFN problem, but other than that it's nothing beyond regular HTTP, FTP, SCP, CIFS, ...

15M upstream *utterly* transforms working from home where all the files I'm working on are on a remote file server.  Autosave is no longer a cue for a 5-10 minute tea-break.
