Tor appears maybe operating at 50% of bandwidth capacity...
If that's true, more bandwidth won't have any end user affect.
So for the moment it might be worthwhile to study
reducing node based latency by ensuring relay CPU's
have similar free capacity available for circuit negotiation,
interrupt processing, and other tor functions.
And to consider not dropping more bandwidth weight into
already saturated jurisdictions, but dropping some into the
Southern Arc and Eastern Zones in an effort to avoid Orion's Belt...
