Why have the Download and Upload speeds been removed in v1.3.0?
They were critical for choosing which server to route through.

We found results could be unreliable, which meant people choosing servers that weren't the best, as they were picking on download speed rather than latency. So the interim solution until some of our server updates are complete is to just remove those for now and rely on the ping.

As you noticed, something like email, a higher latency isn't important, but you immediately notice the impact when browsing.
