But it is a new experience for me. You see, till recently I had a
1 mbit ADSL, and I was the slow link in the overall system. Now I
have a 100 mbit fibre, and I'm the fast one on the game. I'm not
used to be waiting because the web out there is not fast enough
for me ;-P
As I mentioned, I have 60 Mb and often find myself waiting. I also
have an Intel Core i7 CPU (4 core & hyper-threading) and 16 GB of
memory, so the problem is not on my end.
To me, it is funny.

As I said, the main ISPs here are on a commercial war about who is
faster. One goes to 100 Mbps, the other does the same within weeks.
The one goes to 300, the other too. And both saying how fast our
browsing will be, LOL.

Then they install our computers with wifi, that doesn't do more than 50.

The main advantage of fiber for us is not the speed, but that it can support 80 users, even with a chapuza like we have. You can't do that with anything else. It doesn't seem to matter what you use to connect. A 'phone can be just as quick as an intel laptop. We'd guess that the vocabulary includes bandwidth. For just 1 users, we don't think you're going to see much advantage. Vodafone adsl gives you whatever the service can send it to you. We think the limit is how fast the server is sending stuff, not the hardware you use.
