Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) networks are on the brink of bringing significantly higher capacity to residential users compared to today's commercial residential options. There are several burgeoning FTTH networks that provide capacities of up to 1~Gbps. We have been monitoring one such operational network---the Case Connection Zone---for 23~months. In this paper we seek to understand the extent to which the users in this network are in fact making use of the provided bi-directional 1~Gbps capacity.
