The article seem to be a bit confused about what is high data transmission speeds and what is computing power, but still, a slightly faster internet connection would be welcome.

Then again, I am rarely maxing out my own connection. The bottlenecks are the larger Internet backbones me thinks. The few times I actually get the bloody 20Mbps I'm actually paying for, it's fast enough for my needs. Therefore I think the effort should be made in making the large data highways larger, and not just getting fiber to the end users.
