Essentially it's more important for ISPs and consumers won't see any immediate benefits, just that their provider will be able to keep up with their demands. Consumers won't be able to have 1.4 terabits speeds in the near future, certainly not in the next decade.
'Fastest ever' broadband could download 44 HD movies in one second

I'm barely able to watch one HD movie in one second now, so, how will I ever be able to watch 44 HD movies in one second? I'm going to need a much faster brain.
Okay. I will admit to a limited knowledge about these things but I'm just a little confused. I have been looking at the Samsung EVO solid state drive as a replacement in my 2 year old MacBook Pro. The CNET review rates the write speed at 267 MBps in its testing and less for the read. In terms of downloading an actual file to my computer its still going to take close to 4 seconds to write a GB. So, if I understand this correctly this means there is a limitation which is capped at 267 MBps no matter what the claims are for the network. So in the real world what do these high speeds really matter if there are no devices built for them?
@ddcmall But your not the only one on that line. There are hundreds of others. You get your 267 MBps, and four others on your street also get their 267 MBps all adding up to 1.4TBps. Once the sum of all parts exceeds 1.4 TBps that's when things will start to slow down for all. The situation we have today. Bring in a 1TB line into a city and divide that 1TB between 2000 users and you will see what happens.
