Reminds me a bit of the ISP's hawking their wares. Lot's of TV adverts, emails, etc., to upgrade that 1Gb/s line yo always needed. Now, if you're a corporation with lots of users and lots of concurrent traffic - maybe.

But for us mere mortals? I noticed no difference when they upgraded me (oddly, to keep the price down with a new 1yr sprecial) to 300Mb/s . As that deal wound down I managed a new one, good until the end of 2022, for $10 less by dropping to 200Mb/s (and letting them charge my credit card automatically). Still no difference.

I mean, in the great reality of things - who can even send you data that fast? And, with net traffic, how would it get to you. And that's the parallel.

Scores of years ago, when I spent some time on Chemical Kinetics, that was always an importing thing to consider - or discover: "The Rate Determining Step" - and whatever is done around it will have no real effect. In layman's terms, it the intrinsic idea of a bottleneck.
