15.6. Faster systems may be able to send out more packets in a shorter amount of time. The network would then have more packets traveling on it, resulting in more collisions, and therefore less throughput relative to the number of packets being sent.

More networks can be used, with fewer systems per network, to reduce the number of collisions.
