That seems a bit much but I guess Google's mentality is everyone has unlimited internet.
Somebody always has to be at blame, right? So it is Google's fault that they can't find a way to fit 20MB of data into 5MB of transmission.
When you use Google Earth you are loading huge numbers of individual photos, sewn together.
With photos there are only two ways you can go: More MB, or remove the detail. Personally I would prefer they leave the detail in. I can always choose how much I view.--
