Agreed, but what would you actually save by going to 10Gbps?

I have a NAS in an outbuilding which backs up my in-house NAS. Because connectivity to the outbuilding is a bastard, I only get around 12Mbps. However, I don't care, as it only means that the backups take longer, and that's a background task. As long as it completes before the next one starts, I'm happy.

Sure I could bore holes in walls, dig a trench out to the outbuilding and run fibre to it, and install a couple of fibre switches, but why?
