Actually browsing doesn’t improve with connections faster than 512kbps regardless of ISP. At least that is my experience. The reason is that TCP/IP connections take a little while to ramp up to maximum speed so small file transfers associated with web browsing can rarely use a fast connection’s bandwidth. Mind you, youtube and other media rich websites will load faster on faster connections.
For a proper comparison between ISPs you should shift+reload a webpage (in firefox) or clear your browser cache before each test. Otherwise your browser will just load the data from its cache and one ISP will appear faster than the other. Also install and use this firefox addon which will tell you how long the page took to load:
I have tested both connections side by side (obviously with clearing cache first), the main issue is the Worldcall DNS servers are really pathetic, a DNS testing tool showed that Worldcall DNS servers are 3 times slower in resolving a DN then witribe, google and opendns DNS servers.
Second thing is, in Opera I tested the speed that the page is loading at, and on Witribe, pages were being loaded at upto 120KB/s, where as on Worldcall same pages were loading on average at 30 to 50 KB/s. So i don’t know why the worldcall has that initial extra speed boost missing, which we see in every ISP. I am talking about like on 1MB connection, if we start a file download, it starts from 200+KB and the gets stable at 100KB in few seconds.
