But if *everything* goes faster, why not that period
with low data rates too ?

That is the experimental result. Yes.
Now i am looking for a matching theory.
Peter's proposal about the disk seek times is the only
idea which would convince me up to now. I am still riddling,
though, why this enlarges the need for fifo buffer capacity
but does not slow down the average data throughput.
Have a nice day :)
