    I'd just lord it over everyone that asked me about it, for bragging rights. Otherwise, why bother speeding up everyone else's internet. :p

    What should you do with 20 mbps up/down stream?

    If we all answered that honestly there'd be a lot of deleted posts and banned users.

    My grandparents have FiOS. They just use it for TV and phone. :p

    I don't have FiOS. :(

    dgouldin, beware of crappy routers dying under the new upload.

    Be glad you have DSL. I live in the middle of nowhere and have to trust and EDGE aircard to do what I need....

    Back to extreme internet speeds, you should head to speedtest.net to see how fast your internet really is.

    Only 20? Hmm...I get 35-38 on my FiOS. ;) It's only supposed to be 15/15, but for some reason I get 15/35 on my connection. I thought about hosting my own site, but I decided not to and just with what I got.

    Boy you guys with the faster FiOS are lucky. I only get 15 mbps down and about 2 mbps up here in Texas!:rolleyes: We're still luckier than those on 56k;)!

    It's been at least a year since I read over the Fios terms of service, but I believe they forbid you from running any sort of server on their service. Obviously you could get away with your own personal site, but I wouldn't feel comfortable if it attracted high volume traffic.

    As for routers, some cheapo SoHo crumble under high load (high volume of connections) so it could be a concern when you have that much bandwidth at your disposal.

    As for what I'd do with that bandwidth... BT and brag. :)

    This thread almost made me cry. In my entire area, the best I can get is 1.5 down / 840 up. It's depressing.

    I have the same problem. I have 85 kb/s download and only do light browsing and no big downloading.
