Even at Friday evening Netflix time, there’s hardly more than 25/5 Mbps
Also, the real improvements that will be really felt by the people are on
the bufferbloat front (enterprise as well as residential)

If there’s just single one talk that everyone should watch from that
Understanding Latency webinar series I have shared, it’s this one, with
Gino Dion (Nokia Bell Labs), Magnus Olden (Domos - Latency Management) and
Angus Laurie-Pile (GameBench):
It’s all about the 1-25Gbps misconception, what we did to put it out there
as techies, and what can be done to show the customers to change that…40
minutes, but it’s WORTHWHILE.
Really shows that it goes beyond gamers - they were just a canary in the
coal mine pre-covid.

Now, I hope to really piss You off with the following statement  :-P but:

even sub 5/1 Mbps “broadband” in Africa with bufferbloat fixed on as many
hops along the internet journey from a data center to the customers mobile
device (or with just LibreQoS middle box in the ISP’s network) is feeling
way better than 25Gbps XG-PON. The only time the XG-PON guy could really
feel like a king of the world would be during his speedtest.

All the best,

Frantisek (Frank) Borsik
