|But what good is this higher bandwidth stuff? I don't use a lot of bandwidth. The answer is twofold. First, it means my wife doesn't yell "Are you downloading something big?" every time I go to a website and she detects the 20K being downloaded because of the slowdown of her remote-access email that she refuses to POP. Second, more directly (though it wouldn't have been important if I didn't have more bandwidth - indeed, I only found these things because I was trying to find something to do with more bandwidth), things like this and this.
