Others have mentioned the reason for the minor differences, but fiber is absolutely going to be your best choice (for any internet application) when compared to cable or DSL broadband.
Try this, go to different local businesses with WiFi access and do some speed/latency testing and see if you notice a difference between a business with Google Fiber and one with a competitor.
Sure its not an absolutely scientific test, but its a general way to make a comparison. You'll want to pay more attention to the latency than anything and ideally you'll want to try multiple businesses for the same broadband provider to be sure there isn't a network hog fudging the testing.

That's correct, for discretionary traders entering in position manually, when he clicks on a buy market button, this mouse event will have to travel to his colocated machine. If he is using NinjaTrader ATM to manage his position, or locally managed OCO, then he'll get a benefit, as the ticks and the orders will fire faster.
I few words, instead of receiving the market data on his local machine, the trader will only receive the display of his remote machine, and will send mouse and keyboard event to his remote machine.
