This is true for any application, in general.

500ms vs. 1ms for download efficiency will always show you what they are 
made of, regardless of how ridiculous the buffers are.

The solution has always been to get content as close to the eyeballs as 
possible. The positive side-effect with this, also, is that downloads 
complete sooner, freeing up the line quicker.
