Internet providers are currently offering 100Mbps, 300Mbps and even 1Gbps Interent connection speed. What does it mean and why you cannot use full bandwidth?

Latency

Path between your PC or mobile device and the server with content you want to watch is build not only on kilometers of wire or fiber cable but also on tens if not hundred smaller devices called routers and switches. Each element on the path is increasing latency. And increased latency is decreasing how much data you can receive.

Internet service providers are only guaranteeing data transfer to the closest server not the connection speed with every place in the world.
