Same here, but how often does this happen?

I upload my videos to Youtube once a week, if not less, at the most. The 
kids, more regularly, but the 100Mbps I had before could cope. So what 
the 200Mbps gets me now is half the time, which isn't saying much.

Nothing wrong with that, but if you had 500Mbps on a given Sunday, would 
you life be half as bad?
