Internet will reach at a new level with that speed. Also, as a developer I don't have to think much about how to minify things on my website.

Indeed but how will the infrastructure deal with it?

Same as with every new invention, build the infrastructure to accommodate it!

This is ridiculously fast..

To put things in perspective, 200 gigabits is 25 gigabytes per second. It's orders of magnitutes faster than local storage, and is the same as local RAM speed of previous gen consoles!

Such a tech, when widely used, has the potential to make many devices obsolete.

(edit: of course this is the backbone speed and will be divided among lots of clients, but it's super exciting, still)
