Re: More granular data?
mhhf1ve - Yes, I think we're going to see significant differences the more granular we get. Orange is having an interesting experience in France, where they have found that traffic challenges are moving from the access network into the home. Customers are having problems with Wi-Fi coverage in the home, there are issues with their laptop's set-up or processor...so the fiber network is delivering nowehere near advertised speeds. They now send a technician with his own optimized laptop and check in-home wi-fi coverage to demonstrate to the consumer that the advertised speeds are being delivered to the home...whatever then happens inside it.

Re: More Megabytes for us
There's no such thing as unlimited! Every data plan has fine print with a specified data cap. But even if they didn't, I remember those AOL discs in the mail that promised ever increasing "free hours" of dialup connectivity per month. But if you actually calculated it, there would be no way to actually use the advertised number of hours in a month because there just weren't that many hours.

More Megabytes for us
I think this is great that they have more megabits or megabytes which will be used for increased speed for tablets laptops etc. I think it should be unlimited megabytes data for our everyday usage.

More granular data?
It's nice to have these averages and national data speeds, but it might be more useful for consumers to see what their available speeds are on a more granular scale. The FCC actually tries to father this data but it's not very accurate bc ISPs have little incentive to present their actual network capacity publicly. They usually publish data by zip code -- and even if one connection is available, the whole zip code is labeled as covered.
