Thinking about the usage at my school, I tend to agree with you that 
there's not a stunning improvement.  However, popular pages (like the 
fron of Yahoo) can take advantage of the caching.

It also depends whether the browser does any caching.  Because of the way 
lynx is (mis)configured on my home machine, every document I load 
requires slow network activity...
