but, they aren't talking about internet, they are talking LAN. if you have a computer over here and one over there connected through a LAN hub/switch/router, they don't have to communicate the speed your internet runs, they have nothing to do with eachother, this is where the high speeds come in. now, when you ARE playing on the net, that's a different story, of course it's only going to be as fast as the internet is, that's just obvious.
