If you have a user that is used to seeing info within 1 to 2 seconds, they
are not going to understand when the speed is now slower.   Our sales
department could input query parameters and receive info back automatically
and respond to customer.  If using tcp/ip with current slowdown, they would
have to wait 5 - 10 seconds to respond to customer on EACH item they were
looking up.  This would be seen by an average user as a step back.
