How are you measuring your speed?

These are mine. I have tested using steam and also a few torrentss. I usually get about 65-70MB/s.

Re: Rogers brings Gigabit Internet speeds to small business customers in Ontario

A Rogers rep told me that signal strength in range is -10 to +10

 

You won't get full speed on Steam. I downloaded Doom from Steam and best I got was 50 MB/s

 

I don't usually use torrents, but I can get full speed from usenet, but that is 50 connections. The only way you can get full speed from a single connection I think is with ftp, maybe from a university, or a remote private server.

I don't think most (if any) universities have the ability to serve files at a full gigabit/sec... and, for that matter, neither does anyone else's single server...

You are thinking residential...

There are lots of private servers that can serve up 10 Gigabit if you have the money for them. They are shared among many users. With ftp you can easily get gigabit speed and more....well as soon as Rogers upgrades to 2 gigabit.

I wasn't particularly thinking residential, I was thinking a different organization on the other end hosting whatever you're downloading from. If you're willing to spend $2000USD/month, sure, you can get your own server that you can transfer files to/from at gigabit speed... at least in theory. 

 

I don't think too many organizations are going to spend crazy money on enabling a single end-user to download from them at 1 gigabits/sec... and those organizations that serve out lots of downloads (Apple, Steam, Microsoft, etc) are all primarily going to use CDNs. I'm sure the various CDNs' servers colocated inside Rogers have multiple gigabit and/or 10-gigabit connections, but is that enough to let a single person download from them at a gigabit? You yourself were saying that it wasn't... 

 

And as for, say, universities (which was your example), do any universities have more than one gigabit of commodity Internet connectivity (as opposed to research networks, e.g. Orion, etc) for the entire campus?

If you follow the link I posted and click on 1 gigabit server, you can rent one for $400 per month. Shared by 10 friends that is $40 USD each.  

 

As for university connections,  I don't have a account anymore. I doubt there are any public ones.

 

But I think we can agree that the average user cannot max out a gigbit connection with just one connection.
