How fast is your DSL?  It looks like your provider's DSL tops out at 50/5, which
I suspect is not available everywhere, while fiber starts at 25/25 and goes to 100/100.

I rather like the 100/100 symmetrical bandwidth on my fiber. I can
assure you that 100/100 feels noticably faster than 25/5 even though
nothing here would use even 25Mb sustained.
