Could be... though my experience has shown that while MCI doesn't have the
greatest Internet backbone connections in existence, when compared with
SprintLink's, they're more perfect than God. But that's another topic,
Mastercard doesn't apper to be involved with either. 

At any rate, I wouldn't attribute the speed you're getting to their 
network connection. No, it's obviously the fact that they're running NCSA 
httpd 1.3.
