    World population increase, usage of multiple gadgets per 1 human x 8 billion man on earth, duhhh. People now days need an internet for connecting with others. For the next gen, the causes of death is no longer war or thirst.. I use only when I need it to.

    Still the maximum speed I can get here in my village (from India) is 2 mbps for first 8GB and 512kbps after that. Thats too from this month. earlier it was 512kbps and 256 after 6GB.

    I can see the speed of 6Mbps only while I transfer a data from my computer to a pendrive. :)

    Streaming anything on a Saturday evening is slow. Rest of the week, no problems. Come on fiber optic saturation!

      At some point my ISP in UK would throttle bandwidth twice a day during so called high traffic hours which occurred during the lunch break and after work hours)
