I have reasonably fast broadband, which on my Mac, using Safari 6, is perfect for my uses. Webpages load quickly, and I am extremely satisfied with it overall.
My Raspberry Pi is another story. I can't link to my speeds, so you will have to trust me.
Raspberry Pi, Midori Upload: 1.01 Mbps Download: 1.16 Mbps
This, is far less than my Mac's speed.
Mac OSX, Safari 6 Upload: 7.44 Mbps Download: 52.09 Mbps
Why is this?
NOTE: It is important that my PI can run at at least 10/3: I want to use it as a Personal VPN.
