I think the point isn't that Google's returned index is too slow but actually clicking through and loading the pages themselves are prohibitively slow.

I think this would be more appropriate in cases where access was unreliable and intermittent. If you could get on long enough to submit a query, you'd get results back (albeit slowly) even if your access was cut off.
