RE: Download Speed Comparisons
Depending on how many tests you ran and what the site was, the difference between 2.0 and 2.3 seconds could have been fluctuations in the content itself or response times from various servers. For web browsing, once you get over 3-4Mbps or so then bandwidth doesn't make much difference and pages are more latency constrained than anything: http://pandawhale.com/post/396/more-band...arch-paper

Going from 25 to 50Mbps will only show up if you are doing large file downloads regularly (Steam is a good example of a platform that can pretty much use all the bandwidth you can throw at it for downloading games), if you have a lot of people streaming HD-quality videos all at the same time or similar activities that transfer tons of data.
