This depends on your use case.
I am part of a wireless community in northern Germany. The vast majority of our
routers are Ubiquiti NS M5 or TP-Link CPE510 devices (outdoor wireless devices)
with one or two 100 MBit/s ethernet ports.
This was never a concern for our users, since the VPN that most of our members
use, requires loads of CPU power. Thus more than 10 MBit/s are rarely seen.
We were always looking for devices with a faster CPU, but these do not seem to
exist within the price range of approximately 100 Euros.

This is probably a quite a specific use case. Indoor users may well have a real
need for gigabit router ports - I cannot tell.
