is that 100Mbit/sec to other customers and to the provider's own proxies, but
far less than that if talking to the adjacent country or crossing a pond, 
since 100K homes at 100Mbit/sec probably overcommits their upstream and/or
peering connections by 10000X?

(i know this is offtopic, but i've been curious ever since @Home started up.)
