    I'm paying for 50 and only getting 20..

    the man from Delmonte is calling tomorrow to check my router, apparently
    it's overpowered and throttling the connection (whatever that means..!!)

    Yes... if you have Web Shield enabled, it chokes your speed... Mine would decrease by almost 50% sometimes, to @25-26mb/sec ... its a known problem... disable Web Shield, and the speed returns to normal...

    Chrome does seem a bit faster, IE9 seems about the same, which is fast.

    Noticed something 'funny' when I installed IE9, Chrome was faster.

    Compitition is a good thing, didn't realize browser improvement happened that quick
