The internet speed is like the engine in cars . Once you get used to the extra power / torque , hard to go back :)

I'm curious what applications you use that require such high bandwidth (ie. gigabit)?  I recently upped mine from 100->300Mbit and really don't notice any practical difference except when I back-up to my cloud service.    Did your latency improve to the point where you can see a difference when web browsing?

Trying to keep up with these trumpsters ‘ videos and gifs on the MAGA threads :)

But seriously, when you have multiple devices on at the same time w no lag whatsoever , then you realize the value . Also if you store things on the cloud and are uploading / downloading . And gaming, as eyephone pointed out .

What's your ping time with gigabit internet service?  This is the biggest factor for gaming, not really bandwidth (after a certain minimum).   Also, multiple devices with no lag is probably due to your router and proper configuration of your router.

Can anyone here explain why they're adding what appears to be a new cell tower, right next to another cell tower on a hill above OH V2? That "tree" to the right is a camouflaged cell tower.

Could be for a different Network Operator or for additional capacity with the existing Network Operator.
