It's always interesting to me to see that " consumers rank reliability, speed and low latency as the top three most important attributes in a network." That reliability issue probably would come farther down the list if providers had better reliability to begin with I would suspect.

Re: Modern homes
@Mhhf1ve I was about to argue that this couldn't be true, but then I started counting up all my devices in my head and laughed at my naivete.

Modern homes
> "The average home today has more than ten connected devices..."

So true... it's a pain to manage a home network now. I almost need to hire an IT department to keep my home running efficiently and securely.
