ASA5505 throughput - Practical

Team,

I have an ASA5505 base unlimited hosts licensed box with. As per cisco marketing numbers its supposed to provide 150Mbps speed for firewalling. However I am observing different results.

I did bandwidth speed test using various internet based sites and found following comparison.

ASA5505:

Down: 3Mbps

Up: 2.8Mbps

NetScreen5-GT:

Down: 20Mbps

Up: 5Mbps

Does cisco cap the throughput on base license some how? This comparison is using same exact internet connection at same time of the day. I really like the ASA box but if it slows down my internet then I would rather stick with NetScreen-5GT box.

Any comments?
