Sure you can transfer over the intranet faster but the internet is only so fast. To me the Gig is like owning a sports car in a town with narrow two lane roads and the speed limit is 10 mph.
Some people use the gigabit transfer over the intranet a lot, including me. I have my server, my main PC, and my work laptop all connected over a gigabit switch because it takes one tenth the time to transfer movie files that I record and modify on my main PC, transfer them to my server, then stream them whenever I want from my server to my home theater PC. I also backup my work files and transfer a pretty large user profile from my server to my main PC over my gigabit intranet.
If I think about it, more data is transfered over my intranet than from the internet to my house, so it is a good idea to make sure that it is faster. If I had the money to spend right now, I would be wiring the other 3 PCs and 2 networked printers over gigabit LAN, but installing gigabit wires through the house or upgrading my Buffalo router and 3 Buffalo wireless ethernet converters to 802.11n would cost a little too much right now.
