The Internet is a collection of networks. While the Smart City fiber network is engineered to handle 1Gbps connections, not all networks outside of Smart City are able to support this kind of speed. When you surf the Internet, you are not only connecting to the Smart City network but also to other networks that may not have the capacity to support your 1Gbps connection. Smart City cannot ensure that you will receive 1Gbps speeds from end to end. Once your data leaves the Smart City network, it might encounter segments of the Internet that are much slower than 1Gbps due to heavy traffic volume, lower speed links, or routing preference across backbone providers.
