Yes, Enterprise requirements are certainly different, though inching
upwards with the prevalance of SaaS services like Salesforce, O365 and
file sharing services (the latter are a growing % of our traffic at
branch offices).

I feel like our rule of thumb on the Enterprise side is in the 1.5-2Mbps
per user range these days (for Internet).
