Need to update my 10/100 switch?

I just added a Roamio Plus to our home network, and have it and an HDXL receiving network data through a 10/100 switch. From the cable modem we are hard-wired through an Apple Airport Extreme base station (10/100/1000 router) to the 10/100 switch, and then to the two Tivos. Should I upgrade the switch to a 1GB switch?
Thanks for any suggestions!

You can read some of my experience here:

Overall switching to a Gigabit switch did increase the transfer speed to my computer....but not by much.

If you just have a Roamio then it is not necessary, if you add multiple Mini's (3+) and you require simultaneous streams then you might find your network limits.

For most the 10/100 is going to work great.
