The router of course is another leap but hey just the fact that they have it running on existing hardware means that it is not too terribly far off.

I know that I would sure like this kind of speed. Of course with that speed I would need hard drives or SSD's that could keep up with it.
Wouldn't work for everybody, but if the modem were incorporated into a 1G router it'd be worthwhile to folks like myself who're running 5 PCs even if those PCs were only sucking 1G per. It'd also be well worthwhile for a multiple wireless setup (think hotspot in a motel/hotel).

Individual PCs would be limited by their own connection speed, but there'd be tons of overhead to allow for many PCs to connect without affecting the speeds of the other PCs.
