I agree with the requirement for fast download speeds.  Your web site is 
a shop window.  If, when you walk along the high street, a shop window 
does not immediately grab you interest, you move onto the next shop.

Personally, when I'm browsing through search results, I give each page a 
quick scan, and I decided within seconds whether to pursue that route 
any further.  If the page hasn't even loaded during that time, it's a 
definite no.

(Sure, there are some exceptions to the rule, such as a flash 
introduction to a movie web site, but in that case I am expecting a much 
larger pay-off for my wait.)
