revert of "used to describe speeds of Ethernet at or above 1000 Gbit/s"[edit]

The reasons for reverting Madbrenner's good faith edit from "used to describe speeds of Ethernet above 100 Gbit/s" to "used to describe speeds of Ethernet at or above 1000 Gbit/s":

  1. There is no 1000 Gbit/s Ethernet today or in the near, foreseeable future. 200 and 400 Gbit/s are in development and expected by the end of 2017 while true terabit will take at least another 5 to 10 years (my personal estimate).
  2. The title orginated from early 2010s efforts to develop a terabit speed Ethernet PHY. However, as of 2017 this has only led to the development of said 400 Gbit/s due to technical feasibility, expected pricing and expected market acceptance. This is already sourced in the article but not obvious – room for improvement.
  3. It may be necessary to discuss whether the article has to be moved. Changing the lead to state that it refers to actual terabit speeds collides with reality.
