Just went from home with 8 Mbps, to college with wi-fi at 11 Mbps. Today, I plugged in the ethernet cable and 173.31 Mbps... What do I use all of this speed for??? Words can't describe how I feel! If only I had more time to spend on my desktop!

There's not much a single person can do with 173Mbps that they can't do with 8 or 11Mbps. Torrenting is one of the few things you'd notice a difference with. Most servers will throttle your speed so you aren't killing the bandwidth for the other users attached to the server. Torrenting connects to multiple people, though, so a well-seeded torrent can reach pretty amazing speeds.

I can feel you there TC. I went from a 3/1 connection at home to really unstable 9/1 school wifi. Ordered a long enough ethernet cable and got to 95/75. I personally just downloaded most of my Steam games, a couple Origin games, Rift, and Tera, and finally started watching stuff on Youtube at 1080P. Probably chugged a solid 120 GB in the first week, although it's really tailed off since then.
