We have had fiber now for a year and I'm very impressed with the consistency and (of course) the overall speed.  We're paying for 50/50 and typically get what you see in the picture or better.  I have a client that works for the company and he has told me off the record that they are about to double everyone's speed again without a rate increase ( last year they doubled us from 25 to 50.

So, my question is at what point do I need a new router?  I have a basic linksys N and am curious if it will become a bottleneck?

Bottle neck in what way? If you have a gigabit switch then the max you can network everything is up to a gigabit. Wireless N in a perfect situation would probably get you up to 300-500 Mbs. But it's never going to be a perfect situation. You have everyone elses networks creating noise, walls block the signal and generally every little thing sucks out bandwidth from wireless routers I would say you are lucky getting 100 to the places you want. I have my wireless router in my office which is probably 20-30 feet away from my Roku box in my master bedroom anything HD and I get constant buffering.

Pretty....what do we blow up first?

My router is in the middle of the house and I haven't experienced any buffering our Roku or ATV.  So it sounds like our current router will work when our speed doubles to 100/100.

Thanks for the info
