Sometimes even to live is an act of courage
The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention

Quite frankly, I’m not even 35 yet and I already don’t care too much about internet speed. It’s been years since I’ve got past “enough”. The last time I noticed was when I was able to play online games without noticeable lag, but since then internet speed has been almost irrelevant to me.
If anything I do notice slow websites (specially on mobile), but I believe it’s more of a design problem than anything (unoptimized assets, too much overhead, etc.). And sure those problems could be circumvented with faster connections, but in my opinion it’d be wasting resources anyways.
Although I see the value in things like remote surgery and such. Maybe not so much for the individual (do we really need anything faster than Netflix loading speeds?).
