These figures take the minimum broadband speed of 25Mbps as the benchmark. That is sufficient if only one person is watching a high-definition video...

No, try again. I pay for a 6 mbps DSL connection, and that's sufficient for my mother to watch TV in HD while I websurf or watch lower-quality YouTube/ShoutCast videos. As nice as 25mbps would be, it's absurd to claim people need it to watch videos, surf the web, or do much of anything else remotely reasonable.
