Even if a processor that could handle those speeds was released to the public at a reasonable price, it would be moot. No other public computer hardware can support that bandwidth.

This wouldn't be for private use as much as for infrastructure.  Nay sayers have been predicting a meltdown of the internet for years because of the constant increase in traffic.  Advances like this are necessary to keep proving the nay sayers wrong.
