UK: I suspect that's something to do with it - I think 100Mbps is there 
if people are willing to pay. Which as it happens I do - £30/month for 
basic landline and mobile, and 100Mbps internet.

I suppose 1000Mbs would be nice, but hardly necessary. I can download 
1GB through a VPN in a couple of minutes which seems fine.
