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.

Absolutely, I know that.

But it is a new experience for me. You see, till recently I had a 1
mbit ADSL, and I was the slow link in the overall system. Now I have a
100 mbit fibre, and I'm the fast one on the game. I'm not used to be
waiting because the web out there is not fast enough for me ;-P
