Can I ask a really dumb question? Consider it an xmas present. I know 
this sounds like "nobody needs more than 640k", but how can household 
possibly need a gig let alone 10g? I'm still on 25mbs DSL, have cut the 
cord so all tv, etc is over the net. If I really cared and wanted 4k I 
could probably upgrade to a 50mbs service and be fine. Admittedly it's 
just the two of us here, but throw in a couple of kids and I still don't 
see how ~100mbs isn't sufficient let alone 1 or 10G. Am I missing 
something really stupid?
