Default Mobile faster than wi-fi in many countries

the industry thinks gigabit is a must have, especially given the amount
of data people are managing and that nvme ssds, usb3 and thunderbolt
are *much* faster.

I would imagine that a lot of users only transfer data between various PCs
and the internet (eg web browsing, sending/receiving emails, streaming
movies from Netflix etc), and don't make much use of PC-to-PC transfers. For
them, the most important thing is WAN speed (router to internet), so 10 Mbps
may be sufficient for some people with ADSL, and 100 Mbps will be sufficient
for most people with FTTC/VDSL.

Those of us who transfer data between PCs and so need 1000 Mbps are either
running a business which has its own server to provide shared access to
files used by multiple PCs, or else have a NAS for serving movies to one or
more computers, tablets, Roku boxes etc.

most people have more than 1 device and *do* transfer between them,
whether it's another computer or a nas or whatever else.

Ha. there you go with your exaggerations.

I know many people that don't even know they can transfer files from
computer to computer without needing to send an email via gmail.

Cheers, Carlos.
