I'll just interject another data point, which is that TCP connections
    often seem to 'die in the middle' when downloading large browser pages
    when the server tries to send you maximally sized TCP segments,
    and then hits some sort of MTU issue somewhere along the hops.  The
    symptom is that small pages will appear to work fine, but large pages
    will come to a grinding halt.

Hi Matt, and thank you for your comment into this issue.

I should also add, that it seems that the connection seems to die in the 
middle, and then 10 minutes later it comes up as quick as expected only 
to start dieing again 10 minutes later. Could this be perhaps due to 
some caching? It's extremely annoying.
