Looking forward to getting this installed at some point this year. According to the Edmonton map, my side of the ave will have fibre in 2016.

The actual data rates tend to be the usual 10-15% higher, but I'm still having trouble finding a time anyone not running a webcam studio or very serious about streaming their gaming could need this. Still, very sweet, impressive numbers, and all that. Just remember any speed test on wireless needs to be on the 5GHz (ac) band to even have a chance at these speeds - b/g/n 2.4 GHz will top out under 50 meg typically (By standard, although I'm sure there are some tricks to get past it a bit).

The old switch I'm running on my Ethernet network in my home would die if I tried to run these speeds through it!

Cloud backup. People who work remotely, and are working on video editing projects, collaborating with other people.

Yes the use of the cloud and full backup ability is a good argument.

Just signed to 150/150 in an older neighbourhood in Edmonton, and consistently getting speeds of 180/180. Very happy.
