The short answer:
http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2012/sep/18/9-18-c1-epb-throws-down-the-speed-gauntlet/


Your page is comprised of ~300KB of stuff. At EPBs lowest service (50Mbps)
is ~ 1000X faster than a 56Kbps modem. That means your page is the
equivalent of a 300 BYTE page going across a 56Kbps modem.
