I think we need to stay away from personal experience or thoughts.

What we need are "global _data"_ from political organizations or let's 
say "united nations" about internet bandwith connection world wide. As i 
pointed out already, you'll find bad internet connections always if 
you're searching it. I don't want people keep out with small or limited 
internet connections, but you should find compromise between "what is 
used of today" and "what can we expect lower bound" (global data)

Let's take a look to this "global data" and you'll find a good way. :-)

BTW: I'm using a limited mobil LTE access (3gb/month) to the internet at 
work as well. So what ?
That's my personal problem and doesn't count anyway. At home i'm on 
100mbit cable and a xubuntu download takes a few seconds. It doesn't 
count too. :-)
