If we get Gigabit internet it will be worth it.

The potential speeds that they are aiming for 1000mbps is nuts. But there is an internet connection that has a tested speed of 5Gbps NOW THATS INSANE!

Here in Australia (home of the slowest internet in the developed world) before the NBN (National Broadband Network- Fiber optic, Which is still being rolled out and still will be for quite a few years to come) which offers us a MAXIMUM speed of 100mbps, The fastest connection we could get was Cable (which can theoretically provide 30mbps-100mbps) and that was only in certain suburbs as the coaxial hasn't been installed everywhere but the majority of people are on ADSL2 (which can theoretically provide 24mbps)

Yay for crappy internet!!!

What governments, big business etc should be investing in is this-

Google Fiber internet is more of a PR thing than anything tbh. Less than 3 cities in the US have it and even then barely. Its been this way for a long time.
