    It is related to speed of applications using internet, like hhtps vs
    http :-)

    Me, I have full speed if I do not reach the cap. If I do, then I'm
    limited to 64kbit/s. I know of other people still using plain POT and modem.

    My point was that the crypto work done by the machines to support SSL is
    much better now than it was back in the days of IE6. An i7 (clearly)
    outperforms a P3 or P4 CPU.
