Is iDisk now faster with MobileMe than .Mac?

In spite of all the hassle that’s been publicised with people having issues with their mail and other Mobile Me < .Mac migration problems, I've actually noticed that accessing iDisk is quicker. I share an iDisc for apparently trouble free file sharing between some of my colleagues. However, it's painfully slow. However, since the migration it appears to be more responsive, although it's still slower than pigeon post for uploading.
