FedEx has a higher bandwidth than the Internet. Of course, the latency is terrible.
This isn't surprising, given that the information density of disks has increased way faster than bandwidth speeds.
There's an old sysadmin quote: "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway." That's usually attributed to Andy Tanenbaum.
I once drove a pile of full NetApp disk shelves from Boston to NYC and calculated that my bandwidth was around 100Mbps (much faster than our inter-city links at the time).
