Why is any of that a reasonable position to have? What you're proposing is reckless without real, compelling evidence. 

People want X. Why? 

When making policy changes and spending hundreds of billions of dollars, you need to have a good reason.

What can you do with 100 megs that you can't do with 25 megs and why should anyone care? 

That is really the wrong question. People want 100 Mbps over 25 Mbps and therefore it becomes a need for rural communities. Doesn't matter that someone believes these people could do with less. 

The year is 2021 and perceived good internet is minimum 100 Mbps.
