Let's take an example from earlier this year when Activision shipped a 
180GB update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare when they introduced the 
War Zone BR game mode update.

Download times:-

180GB at 100 Mbps: 4 hours
180GB at 1000 Mbps: 23 minutes

How will proper queuing disciplines possibly help here?
