The bottleneck is not generally the speed of serving webpages, but
rather, the speed of the client downloading the data from webpages, as
the data has to go through N regions of the Internet between the server
and client.

Also, users tend to look at more than one webpage at a time, and so
their incoming bandwidth per connection is reduced even further.

The answer to this issue is to avoid large graphics and large pages,
allow client-side caching, move the useful content of a site "forwards"
towards its entrance, avoid banner adverts...
