Having equipment and a port speed capable of supporting 300meg is far away from actually having the bandwidth to support it.

They've just upgraded my area from 200 to 300 meg maximum speed, yet fail to achieve 200 meg a lot of the time at peak times. What's the point in paying extra for an increased connection speed to the green cabinet if there is no local bandwidth to back it up?
