Agreed, but how many "Gigabit" speeds are sufficient for bursting.
The level of burst is congruent with the the amount of generation all of
your devices require at the same time.
Then you hit the device limits itself, e.g., wi-fi on the device, wi-fi
on the AP, routing on the home gateway, whatever actual backbone the
provider has, e.t.c.
Then the fact that not all the devices in the home are going to be
generating burst data at the same time, or even on the same day. That
iOS update may ship to your phone on Monday, but the kids will only get
it the following Saturday, for some reason or other.
