Well, basicly you're right of course. But if i'm looking to europe, the 
last defined internet connection bandwith at home by the european 
commission was 4 mbit. This was somewhere 2006. 2014 the european 
commission upgraded the target size to 30mbit(!) for a average internet 
connection at home.
I think we don't need to talk bandwith in north america or for example  
japan. Well, about africa, i have to admit, i have no sizing ideas.

What i'm trying to say is, that is internet bandwith is growing very 
fast and we're at a point, where we should looking forward and no longer 
backward. Yes, you'll find special cases with a small internet 
connection always, but the most of them (>90%) shouldn't have a big 
problem if the iso size up to 2 GB.

Yes, i'm voting for a "somewhat" below 2 GB iso size.
