There's a little bit more to computers than just the internet. Even the internet can be optimized in terms of speed for every individual out there. If you were a nerd you should've known this. I would've forgiven you if you were a geek though.
To clarify, computers are also used for rendering, playing games, programming and acting as servers. Mine is obviously for gaming, minor renders and home entertainment with perhaps, maaaaaybe, a little personal server hosting myself. My internet right now is 12 mbps only being bottlenecked by my router, soon replacing it with a specialized router for 25 mbps, the exact maximum my provider allows.
Assembling my computer is like having a jet with no traffic and parking spots everywhere I go.
