Am I missing some thing here?
I though 10Mbps/100Mbps ends up controlling the
max packet size traveling over the internet.
So if your using 10Mbps, you end up generating 10 separate
packets versus 1 packet at 100Mbps to move the same amount of data.
This results in a network using 10Mbps to have more administrative
overhead that a network using 100Mbps. This overhead on a heavily
used network results in longer lag times in receiving replies.
