I don't use Buzz. They seem to believe that the slowness is related to the amount of storage space used. I don't use a lot of the space I have and I have not had any issues with speed. From my point of view their assessment may be correct.

I switched to Gmail because I found it loaded quite a bit faster than hotmail. I have to use satellite internet fairly often which is pretty slow and I found hotmail would take forever to load (if it would load at all) whereas Gmail seemed a lot more lightweight and loaded quite a bit faster (even without kicking it into HTML mode)

This is probably Javascript and AJAX speed issues rather than bandwidth issues. My mobile phone and laptop both load up Gmail inbox,it takes my phone 3 minutes and my laptop 3 seconds on the same connection. Hotmail is a lot more bandwidth intensive and slow from my experience too!

I have not noticed any lag.

I hate in Gmail that all the messages of a string stick together...I wish there was an option to stop that and see the emails as individual. I actually hate it!

gmail page loads are fine here - but just trying to type a reply can be an exercise in frustration with my text being laggy. If they can fix that, i'll be very happy.

10% and its typically fine. Occasional slowness, but I tend to attribute that to internet connectivity rather then google.
