Today 100 Mbps is a standard pipe.
No, it isn't. As of Q1 2015 there was no country worldwide with an average connection speed of over 26 Mbps, and there wasn't even a country with an average PEAK connection speed of over 99 Mbps. For average connection speed, South Korea tops the list at 23.6 Mbps; Ireland is second at 17.4. For average peak speed, Singapore is at 98.5 Mbps; Hong Kong is second at 92.6 (South Korea is third at 79.0). Your purported "standard" is faster than the average PEAK speed in the best-connected countries in the world, though it's almost credible to say that in a handful of nations a pipe that's advertised at 100Mbps is standard.
But that's certainly not the case in general. The global average is 5 Mbps and peak average is ~30Mbps.
