Is there a significant difference on everyday use (youtube/browsing/occasional streaming..etc) between 100 and 200Mbs download? Usually it is a $20/month difference.

The lowest available UFB plan should be suffice for average household use.

It would make patches for games, and purchased cames come down faster etc.

Right now I would be happy with any UFB to replace my VDSL with. Except maybe the cheapeest plan.
