Just as YouTube is a very poor indicator as well. You can have the greatest connection in the world, and be able to download a file at 5MB/s, but YouTube will stream ungodly slow because they don't have the bandwidth available on their back end to handle all the requests.
I don't believe this is a lack of bandwidth from youtube. I believe its a problem with their streaming algorithms which tended to be tuned to err on the side of not streaming enough. Since many people skip around on a video or to another video, they don't want to load more than you might need, but they try to load enough too.
