That's not what they talk about on their commercials, on the contrary,
that you'll get more speed, that web browsing will fly.
On the fine print they say that speed will depend on the sites I
visit, though.

I suspect you're talking about different things. You're talking about
what you get from your ISP and Adam is talking about what the servers
you connect to will allow. Quite different things. Don't forget, if
it's a popular site, then there may be several other connections at the
same time as yours. You'll have to share the server's bandwidth with
those others.
