So, one other thing - speed for end users is actually a couple of things in my opinion. Actual throughput is what most people thing of as speed.

There's at least one other component to a users perception of speed on mobile. It's what happens when you move between networks (wifi -> LTE, 3G->wifi, going through a deadspot etc. When that happens today, the download fails because the device gets a new IP and the server might have a sent 90% of the file, but then doesn't know what happens.

End user experience sucks when that happens.

Here's what happens in that situation with PacketZoom (video):


Hope that wasn't too 'marketing-y' but it's a pretty cool feature in my opinion.
