Find how much bandwidth "Up to" actually means

"TIL what EC2's 'Up to' means. I used to think it simply indicates best effort bandwidth, but apparently there's a hard baseline bottleneck for most EC2 instance types (those with an 'up to'). It's significantly smaller than the rating, and it can be reached in just a few minutes."
