With ethernet, you've already got 10, 100, & 1000 mbit, depending on
what you need, with hubs, switches, high-end switches, routers,
bridges, copper or fiber, and near-universal compatability already.
Wide range of performance, price, and features, all compatible.

There are no switched busses in a PC that I'm aware of. If you want
that performance, you can buy it. If not, use a cheap hub.
