USA - Speed is no longer enough, servers are not fast enough to keep pace with access

Boston.com reports that speed is declining as a factor in choice of broadband packages.
In the highly competitive cable market, broadband speed is a major selling point for Verizon and broadband rivals like Comcast Corp.’s Xfinity service. Carriers frequently boost the broadband speeds they offer in their relentless pursuit of new subscribers. But while the extra speed can pay off for households with multiple users, it can be overkill for many consumers.
Roger Entner, an Internet analyst for Recon Analytics, commented:
The problem is that most of the Internet isn’t transmitting data fast enough to take advantage of such rapid broadband speeds
A combination of more consumer devices and higher definition video is expected to make the faster transmission speeds necessary.
